Hello everyone! I am new and delighted to be here.
I will provide my stats and then move on to the specific questions:
-I go to a state school in the United States
-I have an average GPA 3.4-3.5
-I am an Accounting and Business Economics double major
-I have had 2 finance internships (local firms)
-I have one accounting internship (fortune 100 company) I am working at part-time
Currently I am in a dilemma. I have not been able to get job offers from any accounting firms (most probably due to my weak GPA). I had an interview at a bank however I got rejected. Right now I do not know what to do, I am lost, confused, frustrated.
Now that we have the sobbing story out of the way, I want to know my options. I am looking at masters programs in finance and accounting. I am interested more in the finance/economics side.
I also have yet to take my GMAT.
I would like advice on the necessary steps I should take regarding the Masters in Finance programs. I am obviously keeping the Masters in Accounting program at my current school a back up if I don't get into a Masters in Fin program. However the Masters in Fin is my first choice. I am interested in learning about financial analysis, investments, valuations, capital markets in general, etc. I would like a job in anything that relates as well
1) Is a Masters in Fin a good choice for a person with my background?
2) Which Masters in Finance programs should I be looking at?
3) What kind of GMAT score should I target for those programs?
4) Can a Masters in Accounting get me to where I want to be as well?
Sorry for the long read. Any help and guidance is very appreciated! I can also provide a resume in Private Messaging if you want to see it.
