Hi,

I'm a mechanical engineering graduate with 1.5 years of core industry work experience. I graduated in 2016. I'm currently not employed anywhere though. I'm considering a Masters in Management program to improve my prospects.

Based on my research and interest, I have shortlisted the following programs:
1) Masters in Management
2) Masters in Engineering Management
3) Masters in Finance

The programs start in Sept 2019. Most probably I'll have a job by the time I join the program. So, that is 26 months of core engineering work experience.

I know that an engineering management degree will build on my engineering background and open up opportunities in the field.

However, I've some questions related to MiM and MFin for which I'm not able to find satisfying answers. Please help as this a critical moment for me and I lack guidance.

Q1) Is a MiM degree suitable for me at this stage? What sort of career opportunities will open up for me? [Considering my experience]

Q2) I have already applied to some MFin programs. I'm still waiting to hear from the schools. However, is my 26 months of engineering work experience a problem for further employment in the field? I have no relation with finance whatsoever. What is the potential upside and pitfalls that I should know about?

Please Help. Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi gaganpreet94,

Thank you for reaching out. Here are my answered to your questions:

Q1) Is a MiM degree suitable for me at this stage? What sort of career opportunities will open up for me? [Considering my experience] Yes, an MiM is appropriate for your. As far as your career prospects, you should look at your target institution's employment report that will showcase the types of positions their students have secured. That will not only give you an idea about your career prospects but also tell you what types of positions the institution can help you obtain.

Q2) I have already applied to some MFin programs. I'm still waiting to hear from the schools. However, is my 26 months of engineering work experience a problem for further employment in the field? what field? I have no relation with finance whatsoever. What is the potential upside and pitfalls that I should know about? I am not sure what this question means. Why did you apply to an MFin program? What were your motivations in the first place? What are you aspiring to do? Having an understanding of Finance is not a bad thing, but upside and pitfalls depend on your goals.


I hope this helps.

Good luck!
