As you said you dont have enough (or no) work experience, which is most of times admission criteria for international MBA programs (non-indian MBA)
I've not researched much about MS in Finance hence I couldn't guide you regarding its scope and limitations.

I think you can go for Indian MBA courses. Their fees are generally affordable to average Indians and their students pool usually have less or no work experience.
The average age of the students is also less in Indian MBA.
You can pursue a career in your desired field of Finance by doing MBA with finance major from any reputable Indian institute.

All the best.
