Want to pursue a degree in Finance [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2010, 09:47
I will graduate in june 2010. I want to do my masters in some field related to Finance. Mostly i am looking at MSc in Finance in UK. I havent given gmat so i cannot apply to many good ranking universities there. But i want to keep my options open and know what other universities i can get into that are offering courses related to finance. Is it too late now to apply in USA or Canada? My gpa is around 3.0.
Your suggestions would highly be appreciated :)

Thanks

Hey k0ng, I applied to 4 universities in the US. MIT, Wasington University in St. Louis, Vanderbilt and Villanova. Of these schools, only MIT's application deadline has passed. For the other schools, their round 3 deadlines are in March. This is the final deadline to apply and applicants in this round have to be very strong to get in (as admission is on a space-available basis). If you haven't taken the GMAT or GRE yet, you're probably not going to be able to complete these exams AND apply by the deadline at any school in the US (or probably the UK as well). Maybe you could work for a year, take some finance/math classes and bring your GPA up (3.0 isn't good enough for top universities) and study hard for the GMAT (score above 700). Then you can apply by round 1 deadlines for schools next year with a better shot of getting in. Hope this helps. Good luck with everything...

With masters in finance you can find job in government and non-government firms, corporate account department, banks, finance consulting companies, taxation sector and capital sector. You can easily pursue it from top ranked US universities via online mode of education. As far as I know UoP and National American University are the top most among those offering online courses in finance.
