Hello,

I plan on applying for Master in Finance programs starting fall 2016 and I would be very grateful if you give me some advices. I know it's a bit late but my first and only choice was RSM Master in Finance & Investments Advanced (opened this year) due to financial reasons. Unfortunately, they made their first selection based on GMAT only, not taking into consideration any other factors and unfortunately I got rejected. I can still choose their regular Finance & Investments program tho.

1. Profile:
2. Age: 24
3. Nationality: Polish
4. Education: Bachelor in Finance and Accounting (8.4/10 GPA), Master in Law (8.6/10) GPA at Kozminski University in Warsaw, not a very good one but the best in Poland
5. GMAT: 680
6. Internships: 8 months in PwC M&A, 3 months in Enterprise Credit Risk Management of Raiffeisen Bank, 2 other, less relevant internships in Banking (UniCredit Group)
7. 1-year exchange program at IE Business School in Madrid

I am interested in European schools mostly, because of the financial aspect. I planned to apply for RSM only because it is much cheaper compared to any other b-school. In case I will choose to go somewhere else, I will need a student loan for 100% of tuition fee and possibly a scholarship. I thought about applying for MSF at Esade, Hec and maybe some others in the UK. My future plans consider either working in investment banking in London or MBB in Poland. In this case, do you think it is worth to pay 25k euro for ESADE, compared to 2k euro for the regular program at RSM? RSM also gives a possibility of going on exchange and has partnership with such b-schools as Wharton or Duke. What would you recommend?

First, I've heard that the master programs in RSM are not as good as its MBA programs.

Second, for London IBD positions, you should first of all check London BBs' target schools. I would recommend SSE, Bocconi, etc. Dont know about London placements for HEC.

Third, your GMAT score might be not enough to apply for top tier programs. If possible, take it again (or take GRE instead-Some biz schools, such as SSE and St. Gallen look at the Quantitative Reasoning part only)
