Hi,

I am planning to apply for MS Finance with STEM programs for Fall 2018.

My profile
GRE - 314 (Q-162, V-152)
GPA - 2.95/4
Final yr GPA - 3.36/4
I have done Integrated Dual Degree (B.Tech I.T & MBA Tech Management (Finance Majors)) in India.
I would nearly have 24 months of experience when I would join the program.

Post by integrated MBA, I have been working in a boutique investment bank (front-end role) as a Analyst and would be an Associate at the time of application. Current CTC is around 10 LPA.

I am looking for MS Finance course in US having STEM and have less overall tuition fees. Also doing MS in Finance would make sense for me at this stage of my career as due to post MBA job visa issued in US, I am looking for STEM designated MS Finance courses.

Hi there,
You're on a safe track and I've spoken to a lot of candidates who're taking the same strategy. But I'm not sure what advise are you seeking here? You can clearly look at tuition fee on each of your target school's website. Rutgers has very low fee. Infact all the public universities shall have low tuition. But private universities have a lot of scholarship grants. Depending on your post MBA goals, admissibility and employment stats shortlist your schools.

Best,

Hi there,
This is a tough one to answer buddy ! You'll have to look into your career goals to answer that. Plus i'm not really sure if the average salary gap is of 100%. CMU Tepper's MSCF program has average salary of $95,000 which is at max 10% less than average MBA salaries.
You can always do an MBA after graduating from Mfin and working a couple of years in the US. But it's hard to opine and completely circumstantial decision. Happy Thinking !

Best,

I will actually answer the question you asked.

GRE - converts to about a 610 GMAT
GPA - below 3.0

Two years experience is nice, but it will be discounted some since you have an MBA and are looking to do another masters.

STEM MSF programs at a low cost.

UMaryland has a new STEM program
Loyola Chicago is STEM (and cheap)
Tulane is STEM
Bentley
Syracuse
Babson
UBuffalo
Cincinnati

With your stats, I would say you should be competitive with a handful of the programs. Your scores are pretty low, to be honest, but I think you could get into say UBuffalo. That is a pretty cheap state school. Cincy is as well (although might be harder to get into).

Hope this helps.
