The first question that comes to mind- why are you interested in moving into finance? Which area of finance interests you (e.g. IB, commercial lending, internal corporate function)?
You have probably already seen this, but the overwhelming majority of MSC students are in the 20-25 age range (c. 75%). Students age 31 and above represent around 5% of the total. Nonetheless, being in a program with a number of other students with little experience in finance might not be such a bad thing.
What sort of academic background do you have in accounting, finance, and economics?
Thank you for the reply Hjort. I do not have any academic or work knowlege of Finance. I have an engineering IT background. I want to shift my career into Finance (not Finance in IT though). I have not decided exactly what in Finance, but I think I would like retail banking..
Why I am interested in Finance??
I have always been interested in Numbers etc and Maths and my problem solving skills has been my strong point. I have an engineering background. When I was in college I didnt know what I wanted to really do. My major was Electronics engineering. I got an IT job through campus placement and just went with what I got. Only later on, when I was fed up doing my job, did I start looking for other options and I thought a move into Finance woulod be a good one, as I have got the interest for that. Moreover, Finance market is the market is the most lucrtive and growing market.
Is there anything you can suggest for me?
