So I need some advice on possibly enrolling into a MSF program. I graduated from a State school (non-target) in Business Marketing. Currently working in a tech company as an online marketers. I want to get into finance & I've looked into the m.s. in applied finance program at Pepperdine University. Would this be better or just getting an actual MBA in finance. I'm aware that the prestigious schools are known for weaving in finance & economics, such as LBS. I heard there is almost none to limited on-site recruiting by firms at Pepperdine. The reason for Pepperdine is because I would like to stay working in Los Angeles.
I want to know, is this program (est. tuition $60k) actually worth it to launch a career in finance? I'm possibly considering a career in either inor real estate finance. Thanks in advance!
