  • Posted by Rishabh on 01/02/19 7:06pm

    Hello sir
    I am a commerce graduate from India. I graduated in June 2018 but didn't started a job as i was interested in finance related roles but was getting marketing or sales job so decided to take a drop and do some short term course on finance plus applied for CFA level 1 will be giving in June. I was also preparing for Indian Mba exams but screwed them so now i want to try to go for an MIM or Masters in finance program from good schools so with this gap will i be able to make it to a top school like WHU, frankfurt, HEC, ESCP etc.??

    Hello,

    if you obtained a commerce degree already and wish to work in finance after your Master's, I would go for a Master in Finance or a Master in Management with concentrations in Finance.

    Masters in Finance with an international recognition can be found for instance in the FT pre-experience Master in Finance Ranking. Pre-experience means that the programs do not require work experience in Finance.

    The selection criteria of such programs including the business schools mentioned can be found on their websites. The selection criteria are harder to find out but I gave several tips in my eBook Business Masters.

    In addition, I interviewed 53 international Master in Management program representatives about "What is your most important selection criterion?", "If the grade of a candidate's previous studies is only average, can he/she compensate for this somehow?", "Do you require the GMAT?", "What's the average score?" etc.

    You find the original answers of the school reps in the eBook The MIM - Entry Requirements for the Master in Management.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
