MSc in Finance and its effect on top MBA admissions [#permalink]
09 Oct 2008, 17:07
Does getting an MSc in Finance immediately following undergrad hurt your chances at a top MBA ~5 years down the road?
I will be graduating after 3 years and would like to learn more about finance before I enter the job market. I'm considering applying to the top MSc programs (LSE, Oxford, Cass) to increase my understanding of finance, cure an itch to get out of middle America (currently a senior at ~100 ranked non-target), and to hopefully increase job prospects.
Also, a secondary question: what are my chances at these top programs?
GPA: 3.95 ECs: Pres of the largest student organization on campus, some tutoring, etc.. Awards: Named 1 of top 5 finance majors in the business college, National Merit, etc.. Recs: Two really good recs. One from head of Finance division and the other from an Econ prof. GMAT: Haven't taken it yet but 700+ shouldn't be an issue. They're not directly equivalent but I managed a 33 ACT and 1440 SAT with no preparation.
