Hi guys,

I have done by undergraduation in commerce through the correspondence mode. I had been interning all those three years under the chartered accountants program in India so couldn't attend college. How does it affect my chances to go into a good MS or MBA finance program in the Europe, Canada and Australia?

Hi,

A correspondence degree is not as competitive as a full time college degree. However, this is a path several Indians follow. I'd so a few things to balance it out:
1. demonstrate that you had a challenging article ship and learned a great deal.
2. show some significant extra curricular/ volunteering pursuits that point towards overall development during these 3-4 years.
3. Back it with strong work experience (if you are applying for an MBA). Anyways European MBAs require 3 years of work experience (while the American ones desire it )

That's great advice.thanks! Can you suggest which programs in any country would best accomodate me for now if I have 2 years and 1 years of articleship work experience in a mid sized audit firm and a global investment bank respectively, and four months full time with that ibank. Am a commerce undergraduate, a chartered accountancy final exam Candidate and CFA level 1 candidate. My working language would be English. My priorities are job assurance and a good pay package. Thanks in advance!

Any of the two year MBA programs through CAT and similar tests. ISB, the other option does not count article ship as work experience. You can apply in their early entry option but you will need a GMAt score for that. And you will get entry (admission can happen before) only when you have completed two years of work experience.

Would Canada, Australia and Singapore suit me well? I mean their masters in finance programs?
