MSc finance profile evaluation
Hello everyone. I have recently finished my undergrad in Bachelor's in Commerce and am looking at the following MSc finance programs for the September 2023 intake. I will be applying sometime this December.
Stockholm School of Economics
WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management
Trinity Business School
Bayes Business School
Background and nationality - Indian, completed my 12th with a 95.6% in the AISSCE examinations.
Undergrad information - Finished my undergrad with a GPA of 8.0/10. In my university, that translates to approximately 85-90%. I am approximately in the 93rd percentile in my class.
GMAT 700 (Q44, V40)
Work experience - At the time of application, roughly 3 months in an investment banking internship, 2 months in the treasury department of a, and 3 months in the financial research internship from Wall Street Oasis. I would also like to mention that after I apply in December, I will be working for roughly another 6 months in the same bank. So before I join my masters', I would have 14 months of experience, BUT while applying I would have roughly 8 months. Would this make a difference?
Leadership - I was responsible for leading a team that conducted a three month survey studying financial literacy amongst the BCom.(Hons.) students in the campus.
Extracurriculars - I have been responsible for helping coordinate various programs in my hostel, including plays put up during festivities. I was involved in scriptwriting for the same plays. I'm currently working on a blog where I would frequently publish my poetry. To compensate for the lack of extracurriculars on account of me having pursued my education online due to the pandemic, I am doing a few virtual internships from Forage, including a sustainable finance internship. I am also attending the HPAIR 2022 conference as a delegate.
Volunteering - Applying for the GITEX expo and the Tech expo taking place in Dubai. Hope to get into those. I am looking at various other volunteering work that I can do here in NGOs.
Other activities - Current FMVA candidate from
What programs among these do I have the most chance of getting into?
