So, three main questions:

What does it take?

What does it take to get into a Master's program in Finance, Quantitative Finance (or Financial Engineering), Financial Economics (not many have such a thing, but MIT and a few others in America do I believe), or anything else related to finance, or anything where I'm working with money? Obviously it depends on the school, but for the schools which are not at the very top, but right below (say ranked by selectivity, between #5 and #20, or #10 and #20). Again, I know it's a very general question, but I am just looking for an idea. What sort of range of GPA, GMAT/GRE, work experience, etc. are generally needed or expected? Also, what about getting in straight from undergrad?

What do I want?

What are the biggest differences between the three degree programs I mentioned above, and anything else which is related to finance, in terms of coursework and what types of employment are generally obtained after those programs? Specifically, I hope to work with money in my future, and can obtain a strong math background outside of a Masters program, so what should I be looking at. I however don't want my day to be spent mostly just doing a bunch of math problems (but can deal with it if that's the only entry point).

What can I do with...?

As far as working with money goes, what can I do with an undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering? How about Computer Science? Financial Mathematics? Economics with a strong math background, or vice-versa (Math with a strong Economics background)? Any combo of those?

Thank you.

Should I have posted this in a different forum? Most of the questions here are about people's specific profiles, while mine is more general.
