Hi Guys,

I am new to this forum but have been quite encouraged by the support I have been reading within the community.

I am intending to apply for a Msc Finance in IE Business School, Warwick, Bocconi, ESSEC Business School, HEC Paris, CASS, EDHEC, and why not MIT. It would be great if I could get some useful advice on my suitability and chances of acceptance .

My Profile is as follows:

Nationality: Moroccan
Age : 22
Academic : Currently pursuing a Bachelor Of Business Administration with a double concentration in Finance and Marketing from Al Ahawayn University In Ifrane. N°1 University in the country (Morocco)
GPA: 3.8/4
GMAT Score: 720

Working Exp: 3 Months Internship at a Startup Private equity firm (search fund). Not great, but the programs above are meant to be pre-experience
Activities : Founder & President of DJ club (at the university)
Member in Finance club
Regional Champion of taekwondo

Thank you and I hope to hear from you guys soon

I think your stats are pretty good. The GMAT might be a little low for some of the top top programs, but I would apply anyway. GPA is very good and a 720 is definitely within range for all the schools.

Your profile looks good. GPA and GMAT scores are great. Al Akhawayn University also has a good name as such.

Basically, your work experience is not that much especially when you are applying for Ms in Finance which looks for previous work experience in the finance field.

I would suggest showcasing financial experience in clubs, projects, certifications and whatever internships you have done.

Schools that have you mentioning such as HEC Paris MIT would be out of your league, but others can be still targeted with an overall strong application.

That GPA is going to be an issue for HEC Paris. You might get lucky because of the CFA completion levels and the work experience. European schools tend to focus on GPA, GMAT, class rank, more than say US schools.

Have you thought about an MBA? Seems more relevant with your experience. I'd also suggest applying to more schools.
