Anyone applying to or accepted at the Oxford's MFE programme. Do you mind sharing your profile, as I am not sure whether I got what it takes. I am also applying to LSE /Finance and Economics/ & HEC /Finance/. Any idea whether it is worth applying to MIT's finance programme?
My background: GMAT: 740 (Q48, V44) Education: 1st class from a UK university (Management with Finance) WE: Internships at Citigroup and the Ministry of Finance /both in continental Europe/ EC: President and co-founder of a relevant society
It is generally expected that you have a strong math background: calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and statistics. I believe that the average GMAT score is 730, and most applicants will have stellar grades; you're good in these two categories, and it helps that you have two internships.
Oxford has a reputation for its extremely intense interviews. The questions asked will be very technical. After reading about the types of questions applicants were asked, I felt that I wasn't qualified for Oxford.
The Oxford MFE looks for applicants with specific skills. It's different from the MBA.
