Difference between MS (Finance) and MBA Jobs & Careers


Can some one list out the differences between MS (Finance) n MBA courses?
Difference based on:
1. Course content (which i think won't be much except for the depth to which each subject is taken up)
2. Career Opportunity
3. ROI

Vishal, if you want to go for MS-fin from a US univ, why you need an MBA thereafter. or if you want to go for MBA from ISB why you need to go for US MS in finance. i guess you need sort out priorities and goals.

MDI can never beat UIUC MS in finance. neither IIM's. IMT dosent comes to consideration also. UIUC will launch you in to different universe altogether.

Go for MS course.. I do not think IBs come to IMT and MDI campus and even if a few of them do come, the competition will be very diff. to beat.
