Hi team,

I seek your advice on the right graduate program for me. I am a financial analyst currently working with capital markets regulator in TZ. I graduated BCOMM in 2010 majoring Accounting and got my CPA (T) in 2011. Currently, I am a CFA Level III candidate and I am enrolled in CISI (Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment) program (This program is run by my office for all technical staff. Therefore, is mandatory). I have 6+ years of experience in corporate finance. My short term goal is to advance my career into a managerial position at the Authority. Thereafter, I would like to work with WB, IMF, IFC or any other international organization to get exposed and accumulate sufficient experience to start my own consulting firm in say 10 years. I have not sat for GMAT and I do not expect to sit for GMAT in the near future. I expect to do my GMAT sometimes in August of September this year. I am actively looking for scholarship and want to go abroad for my postgraduate studies this year or next academic year.

In view of the foregoing, can you advise the appropriate program for me between MBA/MSc Finance based on my experience and qualifications?

Hey there,
Well for your target goals, either could work.
The thing to understand is that MSF is a lot more numbers/hard=finance based whereas an MBA is a lot more general.
The second major difference is WHO you will be with - if you do an MBA people will be from EVERYWHERE... if you do an MSF, everyone will be in Finance. So it depends also, who you want to hang with.

I hope this helps!!!
Best,
JF

I think if you are eventually looking to run your own business the more cross-functional skillset of an MBA may aid you more given your years of functional experience in finance. Will be hard to recommend the right MBA program until you take your GMAT but I am leaning MBA for you
