CFA L2 candidate.
Interested in finance roles.
Can you please suggest good B schools for finance (apart from the usual suspects
Also i am interested in Master in finance/financial engg. Kindly assist with that too.
I hope 4 yrs of non-relevant work ex won't matter for either of the above mentioned courses.
Thanks in advance for your help. I am a 28 year old management consulting professional with exposure to business research and analytic's at the start of my career. I have a total work experience of 7 years 4 months as of today and have registered for GMAT in January 2014 (started preparing). Previously, I have done my Economics Honors from Delhi University and have average academics (Graduation 58%, Xth 82% and XIIth 78%). I also have a PGCBM from XLRI.
Although I will try my best to get 700+ in GMAT (have appeared for CAT thrice and scored >93 %tile), but let's assume I end up scoring 680-720 in GMAT. For the “why MBA” question, I am looking at getting into industry from management consulting (like a strategy/ corporate planning role). Also, I would like to get a jump in my compensation (currently working in India at a CTC of $40,000). I jave home loan liabilities to take care if so need a secure B-School; also, I am married (no kids). Taking these assumptions, here are a few queries that I have:
1. Should I even consider a MBA abroad given my home loan liability, the fee for MBA programs and job insecurity?
a. If yes, then what B-Schools fit the bill? I shortlisted IMD and HKUST as of now, but given the fee for IMD and finance-driven placements for HKUST, I feel it's a risk.
2. What B-Schools in India will make sense for me?
a. I have shortlisted IIM-A PGPX only. Nothing else seems to fit the bill for me. ISB seems to be too competitive after I get into it and changes of getting better salary and preferred role seems to be less than IIMA. This is primarily as there is a lot of competition from 'young blood' at ISB.
I would really appreciate any help in this evaluation. Thanks!
I have 3 years of IT experience as of now. Above average academics and decent achievements at work. CFA L2 candidate. Interested in finance esp. Fixed Income.
Which B school are good in finance apart from the top ones like Columbia, Wharton, NYU Stern,etc ?
Please resolve my query...
I am currently working with State Bank of India as Assistant Manager. Total Work ex so far including all I have is 3.5 yrs. I am a B.Com Honours Graduate (from Delhi University), and about to complete Company Secretary (CS) professional degree.
My co-curriculars, HSC SSC % etc are all good enough!
I am going through a lot of work pressure, and therefore I am not able to prepare for GMAT, hence I have availed leaves.
So my question is, in case I decide to resign, and remain unemployed for 6 months ...will that be a blot on my profile? Do foreign B schools like Nanyang, NUS, and other Asian B schools look for continuation in work-ex and will a High GMAT score suffice for that ?
Thanks in advance!
