Hello Everyone,

Bit about my background. I worked for Accenture (IT) for around 2.5 years post undergraduate degree in Computers in India. I then completed MBA Finance in 2016 from a top 10 college in India and would be joining a bank shortly. I am planning to pursue MSF in 2018 which is 2 years down the line. The main reason behind this is to specialize in particular area of finance and hopefully look for good job opportunities in the US.
I had given GRE (Q: 167 V:144) and TOEFL (103) couple of years back and hence, I would have to retake TOEFL atleast.
I know it is quite early to be asking for 2018 admissions, but if I could get your expert comments and views on my profile and the programs (STEM certified only) that I could target then, it would be of great help since I could structure my resume accordingly in these 2 years.

Would really appreciate your inputs on this !!
Thanks a lot in advance.

STEM Certified MSF programs:

MIT MSF
WUSTL MSF-Q
Temple (number of programs)
Sacred Heart University MS in Finance & Investment Management
University of Buffalo MSF
University of Cincinnati MSF
Fordham MS in Global Finance
University of Denver Masters in Applied Quantitative Finance


I am sure there are a number of others, but this is what I found right away. More programs are getting their MSF STEM-certified because of how it helps international students so I would expect a number of other well known programs to have it by the time you are going to school.

Thanks for the List MSFHQ!! I guess I am in the same boat as OP - International candidate, hence Looking for STEM based programs for the additional OPT period on offer. I have got a GMAT score of 760 (V41, Q51) and TOEFL score of 111. I've got close to 5 years of workEx in Finance (Equity research) and total of 7 years of Work exp, all of it in India. In my research, I was able to find a few more STEM accredited programs (Some of them got this STEM Accreditation very recently)

1. Vanderbilt - MSF
2. UCONN - MSFRM
3. Rochester Simon - MSF
4. I found that MBA at UCONN had three STEM accredited specializations . Link here: http://mba.uconn.edu/academics/elective-tracks/


MSFHQ - Can you please suggest a good STEM MSF program for an International candidate like me, with 5+ years of work exp?. I can see that class profiles in top MSF ( MIT, Vandy) are geared towards fresh Grad students (right out of college) or early stage professionals (1-2 years of work exp). I did Apply for MIT but was not invited for the Interview. (Probably my work Exp played spoilsport).

How would Vandy treat applicants with 5+ years of work exp? would it be a deterrent there too?
