Hi everyone!
This is my first post on this forum, forgive me if I have violated any rules of this platform.
I'm interested in pursuing an MSc in Finance from high ranking EU universities.
My profile:
Undergrad- 7/10 GPA - First Division (#1 B School in India)
GMAT - 740, Q50 V40, IR8, AWA awaited.
No Finance related or international work experience

Additionals:
A. 1 year part-time/contractual work experience at Ministry of Commerce, handling multiple non-finance projects related to national government schemes across several other ministries. (During the final year of my undergrad studies)**
B. Volunteer work at an NGO for around a year.


**PS: The 1-year work exp did not cause the low GPA, my grades in the final year significantly improved.

Do I stand a chance to be accepted by the top universities: HEC, HSG, IE, ESADE, BOCCONI, ESSEC, etc. ?

All suggestions/inputs are welcome and appreciated.
(Thank you for taking the time to read this.)

Hello satvik1997

I disagree with previous comments.

You do have fair chance at all universities mentioned in your question.

You scored significantly higher on GMAT compared to average of admitted students of all schools on your list :clap:

For instance, University of St.Gallen requires minimum of GMAT 680, HEC has median GMAT score of 710, but doesn't have minimum cut off,, IE requires minimum of 650, ESADE average GMAT 670, BOCCONI/ESSEC do not specify target score, which is a good thing from competitiveness point of view.

So, you get a picture.

Having prior working experience in Finance is not a condition usually, except when program is designated as post experience.

Vast majority of MS in Finance programs are pre-experience, academic degrees.

Fact that grades in your final year actually significantly improved along with working experience is excellent sign of dedication and seriousness, be sure to mention that in personal essay.


Good Luck :geek: :cool:

*I am going to update you with some facts later regarding that in this very same post, and elaborate a little bit more so stay tuned, but answer to your question will stay the same.

Hey you really have a good chance for the above universities. However I would suggest you to do some online courses based on finance, you can also try to write a research paper on finance. These things will improve your profile. For universities you can also look at LBS. They have a very good program on Masters in Finance.

All the best for your admissions :)
