Hey Hjort,
I am planning to apply for an Msc Finance and have the following queries:-
1) I have a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering, would the MSc
Finance be a good method to switch into the financial field.
2) My goal is to be in the hedge fund/PE industry preferably on my own!!
How is EDHEC France MSc Finance course in this context?
3) Would this be a positive if i decide to pursue an MBA after a few years,
say, when im 30-32 yrs old(am 25 now)??

Please advice and further suggest any other schools that i should be looking at.

Regards
mdc

1. Perhaps. An MS Fin would provide the academic foundation to finance and provide access to recruiters.

2. What is the progression that you envision for going from where you are now to having your own hedge fund? In particular, how would you plan to gain the knowledge/experience of the industry before opening your own fund? Have you looked at the EDHEC MS in Risk and Asset Mgmt?

3. It could be positive but it depends on your stated reasons for the MBA when you apply. A one year program does not take much time away from your career and success in the program would be viewed positively.
