Pre-Experience Programs

Post Mon Dec 19, 2016 6:16 pm
Hello,

I want to inquire about my my chances of getting into the following programs: MFE at Oxford, Mfin at LSE and MIT and MFA at LBS.
My details are as follows:
1-I am currently in the last year of my undergraduate in the top business school in Pakistan, majoring in Accounting and Finance along with a minor in Mathematics.
2-I recently took the CFA level 1 exam as well and hope to clear it.
3-My CGPA is 3.632/4
4-My GMAT score is 720 (Q48,V40)
5-I have interned at Ernst and Young and the Central Bank of Pakistan (State Bank of Pakistan).
6-I have participated in numerous extracurricular activities throughout my life and done some volunteer work as well.
7-I also have around 6 months of experience in research, although no publication is in the pipeline.

Moreover, I would also like you to tell me if there are other programs that I should apply to.

Thanks.

Hey there!
Well from your academics and internships Id say you are a pretty strong candidate. If you have community service to match and ECs too it will help!

Other that that I think you can aim for any top program. Are you only looking in UK/Europe or also the states?

Best,
Jon

Can you mention any top schools that have pre-experience graduate programs in finance. The only one I can think of is the MFin at MIT. Can you give me some other suggestions?
