Hi everyone,

I am planning to do my masters in finance after a year. I am in my last year of college (majoring in accounts) and since i do not have any internship experience, I have decided to take a gap year. Can someone please advise the nature of work experience that'll be valued by top European schools (esp. HEC) offering pre-experience Msc. Finance ?

I advise you take a look at how several profiles were evaluated in the this link. I guess that will give you a better idea.

Hi, most of the MS programmes don't require experience. If you have a relevant experience it will be added advantage to your profile. At the same please look into some volunteer experiences also. It will boost to profile.

Thank you for the guidance. I'm new to this site so still navigating my way through.

As I don't have any internship experience throughout my under-graduation (was doing a professional course alongside) so I think that maybe some work exp. will improve my competitiveness. Thanks for the advice on volunteering, will keep it in mind :)

Hi.

I can potentially offer some advice here, I was provisionally admitted to the MIF.

I had an internship at a big Investment Bank in the UK (think GS, MS, JPM), as a Corporate Analyst - this has done me well in all applications as experience and a topic of conversation, and HEC did ask numerous questions about it. I also had a couple of months as a teaching assistant in Statistics and Probability for first and second year students at my university. Finally, had a couple of years as a part-time database administrator (excel guy, basically) in a couple of local companies.

Hope that helps!

No problem! Should have made clear also that I'm in my final year of University, so no full-time post-college experience at all. That hasn't affected my applications one bit.

Good luck :)
