Hi,

I am a male candidate from India. I'm applying for MS Finance courses in the US.

I graduated in 2016 from Delhi University (not the best in the country) in Bachelor of Engineering (Manufacturing Technology). My GPA was 3.4. I have 2 years of work experience in Supply Chain Management at one of the largest Indian MNC's. I decided to make a shift towards finance and subsequently cleared CFA Level 1. I took my GMAT this week and scored 770 (Q50 V46).

What schools can I realistically target for MS Finance?

Thanks in advance.

Hey swank

Welcome to GMATClub! Kudos on the awesome score.

I would recommend you to look at the MFin class profile of your target schools.
This may give you an idea of which schools are the ones you could target. Try
to find a few people who have similar profiles as yours on LinkedIn. This should
help you get a clear picture and some insights that will help you in your journey.

Alternatively, you could post your profile evaluation request at the forum here.

Hope this helps you.

Amazing GMAT. Work experience helps as well. School rank is almost a neutral since you have a decent GPA, the top GMAT, etc.

You will get into most schools you apply to. Some US programs will decline for reasons outside of your scores, but you will find most programs will admit you.

Where specifically are you considering going for your masters? I can give better advice if I had a better idea where you want to go.

Hi MSFHQ,

Thanks for the reply. I'm applying to many colleges because I can't afford not getting a college this year and I don't know what schools I have a good shot at:
- UT Austin McCombs
- UI Urbana Champaign
- UCLA Anderson
- Rady, UCSD
- Purdue
- Berkeley Haas

In Europe:
- Esade
- LSE
- Imperial
- Said
- Stockholm School of Business

Hey there,

To give a realistic evaluation on your profile, I would need more details ( Extra-curriculars, any quantifiable achievements,etc.)

Here are some pointers on the information that you provided:

Your GPA looks and GMAT is very impressive.
CFA certification is an asset to your profile, so make sure that you highlight it properly.
But note that your selection chances are not contingent on a good GMAT score alone. To get into a good school, you need to -
Showcase a holistic profile
Highlight key learnings and achievements in your application
Justify your reasons as to why you are an ideal fit for the schools through your essays

As far as the course is concerned, MSc in Finance is an extremely competitive course, and you will face tough competition from people who have a far extensive financial experience.

Also, by pursuing an MFin, you will be switching streams ( From supply chain to finance) . You will need to work hard to justify your reasons for making this switch through your essays, else it will turn out to be a competitive disadvantage.

Some MFin schools to look at can be Vanderbilt, Duke MQM, LSE, IE


Since you are unsure about your target schools, I would suggest you to take our free profile evaluation - It will give you a realistic idea of your strengths & weaknesses,and you will have a better idea about your selection chances in your target schools.
