Hi All,

Looking for guidance on achieving specific goal here.
I have 16 plus years of experience with a post MBA experience of 11 plus years.

I am in IT advisory role, and I would like to move into Corporate Finance role preferably with F500 companies, though will be open to other companies.
I am looking to online MBA to do this. I don't mind doing this again. I also like finance leadership programs, though my age will be a factor going against my interest.

I do like WP Carey, though there is not a ton of finance electives offered as concentrations...It's more lock step curriculum. I spoke to some of Kelley Direct students about such transitions, and they have been warning about limited or no chances for such transitions unless may be i secure an internship role...

What do you all suggest here. Thanks in advance for guidance and support.

I'm a little confused I'm wondering what you hope to achieve with an online MBA that you have not already achieved through an on ground MBA.

Have you done much research as to what will get the job done in this situation? I would strongly recommend that you get in touch with corporate finance recruiters at companies you're interested in and also Headhunters.

This way you have more certainty that what you're spending your time and money on is going to achieve the results that you desire.

I'm not absolutely sure how to advise you but I really don't think an online program is going to add much more value than Coursera.

Given your age, I think I would maybe bite the bullet and do a top EMBA at a school that is well-regarded for finance. In particular, Wharton SF or Philly.

Best
Farrell

Thanks Farrell. I will try to reach out to recruiters in my network.
Are MSF courses such as IE offer any avenues... These are again Global online courses. Not sure how much of value they offer, but they do have some decent finance concentration.
