Hello,

I'd like to request for a profile evaluation and recommendation for my application
in MSc Fin or MBA.

Here is my profile:

I am South East Asian who is now a citizen of New Zealand. I have
been living here for 7 years.


Education

2nd Year Applied Mathematics
University of the Philippines — did not finish,
relocation to New Zealand

2nd Year BS Electrical and Electronic Eng with Honours
Auckland University of Technology — did not finish, work full-time, bills, wrong
priorities, happy go lucky, irresponsible

BBus Marketing
Auckland University of Technology — Graduate

Exchange Student (1 term)
John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada

My GPA for BBus Marketing is 3.3.


Work

1 year PT — Regional Service Controller: supporting 63 stores across New
Zealand in re reverse-logistics

0.5 years PT — Admin Assistant to GM of Operations for the same company
(offered permanent role but declined due to departure to Canada)

1 year FT(ongoing) — Public Transport in Auckland as Information Specialist
responsible for creation and development all public transport timetables
and brochures in Auckland.

GMAT

I took a mock up GMAT and got 100% in Quant but did terrible in Verbal. I
got 680 overall score. My target is to get minimum 700 Overall.

Questions

1. I would like to transition into Finance and get into Wall St — would this be a
stretch? Would MS Fin be more ideal than MBA?

2. I was looking into Stern, LSE, LBS, and UCL -- would this be possible? What
other schools would you recommend?

3. Would MIT, HBS, Wharton, etc be asking for too much?


Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi there - thanks for writing! The MFin is outside of my area in expertise, but I think it's a bit more typical for those already working in finance who want to advance in the field, vs. career switchers. For the MBA (which would give you a more holistic business education), regarding your work experience - it seems a bit light for the programs you're targeting, where most candidates have 3-7 years of full-time work experience. To work in finance on Wall Street - firms that recruit for these types of roles value a high GMAT, so I'd aim for 720+.

In your current role, is there analytical and leadership work involved? For people who are switching careers, the AdCom would want to know what transferrable skills you have that would benefit you in your new post-MBA role.

Hope that helps a bit - feel free to write back with any other questions!
