Hello Everyone,

I was recently admitted to Penn State' Masters in Corporate Finance, and was wondering if it's a gamble worth taking, considering
it is the inaugural class.

The program is Stem-certified, so it is extremely valuable as I am an international student. However, my only concern is that will
the Penn State and Smeal brand compensate for the lack of reputation of this program? Keep in mind that my main goal is to get a
decent job in the U.S. post graduation.

Thank you!

I'm skeptical about this program and Penn state as finance school. Penn state is known as powerhouse for supply chain.

Thank you for the response.

I'm aware that Penn State is mostly known for supply chain, but I've looked at their undergrad finance program and it is quite decent.
My main concern is whether employers, that routinely come on campus to hire finance students, will consider hiring students from this new program? In other words, will OCR suffer because of the Masters program being a new one?

Look it needs more searching and I advise you to open communication with career service and adcom to know their plans. Ask for Skype meeting with career service.
