Hello, I would very much appreciate if you helped me with evaluating some aspects of my profile.

I am looking to apply to Master in Finance programs in Europe ( LSE, HEC, University of Saint Gallen, etc.) and possibly in the US.

I have a GMAT score of 760 ( V50, Q47) with IR - 6 and AWA - 5.5. I have graduated from the American University of Armenia ( GPA 3.9) with BA in Business degree. I have done a few short internships such as in the Central Bank of Armenia. I have worked as a teaching assistant in my university. Also, I was a founding member of the Finance Club and the Vice-president of the chess club. My undergraduate honors thesis received a "Best Thesis Award". After graduating I started my own logistics business (which has nothing to do with finance).

I wondering whether I have a good chance of getting admitted to top European Msc Finance programs and whether or not there are programs in the US that would suit my profile. Is the irrelevance of my current work experience too much of a problem for Business schools ? What would you suggest me do?

Hi 170896,

Thank you for your post. MBA programs are my specific area of expertise, but with a 760 GMAT and 3.9 GPA, your stats will be on the higher side for MSc Finance programs. When deciding on location, I encourage you to research where graduates from the various programs end up, and where you hope to land after the degree wrt to both job placement and geography. You should also look at how much work experience candidates in the various programs have. Some will be geared more toward candidates with very little work experience (e.g., just graduated or 1-2 years of experience), while others will be a bit more geared to folks with a decent run of experience (e.g., 3-6 years of experience). I wish you the best of luck with next steps!

[Also, I wouldn't worry about what you do. Starting your own business is very interesting in its own right, and I'm sure if you're running that business, you have to deal with the finances in some (or many) respects! Just make sure you unpack why you specifically want an MSc Finance, where you hope it leads, how who you are and what you've done to this point PLUS the masters degree gets you where you want to go, what unique contributions / perspective you can bring to the class, etc.]

Best Regards,
Greg
