I can't comment on the wisdom of decisions. What I always recommend is to conduct what we in business call "due diligence" - check the probable risks and consequences of those risks that could arise out of decisions. If they're acceptable - go ahead. If they aren't or can't be mitigated / eliminated, then don't go ahead.
Don't know about abroad, but the MFC @ DU is actually more recognized in India than people give it credit for. I would suggest the below due diligence steps before committing to it:
- Try and understand the profile of current students (both years), and check their experience profile. This should "indicate" the type of people you're studying with.
- Then check out the companies and (more importantly) the roles / positions they got into. Their jobs are likely to be 100% in the field of finance, but with what kind of companies and what kind of roles - management trainee or more assistant / associate manager or even manager level roles...Best would be to get the school to put you in touch with 2009 graduates (best would be if you found someone with your pre-program experience profile) - so you can get in touch with them and ask them about the program.
- If you find that most are fresh grads at entry and roles are at the junior most level, one might wonder whether the career services is geared only to those levels and perhaps they might find it difficult to manage your expectations in terms of companies on campus and the roles offered.
The MFC is quality wise quite good - it's a proper DU Master's Degree and has been successfully sending people into good financial careers for over 30 years now. I knew about it back in 96 when I graduated college.
I have one more query and now again looking towards you for the answer,
actually i was quite cofirmed for joining the MFC, now recently i met one of my friend who told me that MBA has an edge over MFC, i mean whenever there will be some manegerial level post, preference will be given to an MBA not an MFC (DU),
I am little confused, should i drop my plan to join this year and prapare for GMAT, so that i can join some good B-School, which can justify my 5- year experience,
or should i stick to my decision to join MFC ( as per your suggestions i had a talk with few seniors about the role being offered at MFC, and i find it quite good, roles are mid managerial to senior managerial level, alumni of MFC is also doing quite good, though they are less in no but they are at good at hierarchy)
cant i go for CFA along with MFC, will that be good for my future growth.
can you tell me the exact difference between MFC and MBA,
can my 4 years of experience (with 3 yrs in IT) and an MFC degree cant help me to go higher in life.
i know qsns are more, but waiting desparately to listen from you.
Thanks and Regards
