Where should I study Banking and Finance?by XL P. Educational Consultant
A student who opts for a Masters in Finance, sets themselves up for a lucrative career in the most sought-after jobs in the field of international business and finance. Whatever the economic climate, there is always huge worldwide demand for experts in fields such as banking, fund management, multinational companies, securities firms and financial consultancy. A MS in Finance is thus a sureshot way of securing your long term future.
Masters in Finance courses usually last for one or two years, depending on the institution and location. Their objective is twofold:
1. To prepare qualified undergraduates for careers in mid- to senior- level financial positions such as in financial analysis, investment management and corporate finance.
2. To help established financial professionals to advance in the workplace, build on and update their skills and knowledge, or change career specialisation.
To get admission into such a finance course, prospective students are required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), subject-specific proficiency tests, and language proficiency tests. Some Masters in Finance programs also require completion of pre-enrolment courses, such as Introduction to Mathematics/Finance/Accounting to ensure the student is up to speed and a good fit for the course.
Europe is usually considered to the best overseas destination to stud banking and finance. London Business School and Oxford in the UK, HEC Paris in France, and Bocconi in Italy, all feature in the world’s top ten schools for banking and finance degrees.
United States of America is also a popular destination to study banking and finance with MIT (Sloan), UC Berkeley (Haas), and UCLA (Anderson) all consistently ranked within the ten best schools in the world for this course.
