Hello to everyone,

@parthdalmia : regarding the Masters in Finance vs the MBA...sorry to chip in so late in the debate, but allow me to say that you're attempting to compare apples and oranges ; I have discussed the matter with experience professionals, recruiters and schools and all opinions converge on the following :
- Although a big investment, the MBA is more profitable (not just financially) IF AND ONLY IF it is the right thing for your career prospects
- The masters in Finance (HEC AND others) are perfectly sufficient if you intend to stay/follow a specialist track.

If you've had the bid talks with family and mentors, and are set about your intent to pursue career in General Management, a Masters in Finance is a waste of time, and wht you need is a personal developemnt plan: whats your curent skill set, what's your nex milestone in terms of competencies ans whith what mix of training, self tutoring and job/role changes will you get it.
Hope this helps, but do feel free to tell me your thoughts about this.

Cheers,
A.C.

Some of the IR questions are experimental -- that means they get taken out before your score is actually calculated. So you may have gotten some experimental questions -- but that's okay -- it didn't hurt your score. THen maybe just a few incorrect got you to the IR score of 6.

cheers,
