      Hi Ankit,

      thank you for your questions. I think the key decision you need to take is

      • whether you want to go for a Master in GENERAL Management
      • or a SPECIALIZED Master such as the Master in Finance

      If you go for a Master in General Management you have two options, the MIM (Master in Management) or the MBA (for which you need a minimum of 2 to 3 years of professional experience).

      • In this case, I would suggest that you go for an MBA because you already have experience.

      If you go for a specialized Master in Finance then you only need to consider your ACADEMIC pre-experience:

      • Some programs require a first degree in Business
      • Some programs don't

      You can use our Search Engine Filter "Entry requirements" to search for

      • Masters that require a first academic degree in business or economics
      • and programs that don't

      Best wishes
