2nd undergrad + Master in financial engineering vs Work
Hi everyone, I'm graduating this semester from a bachelor of science in actuarial mathematics and I really want to do a Master in financial engineering but I don't think i have any chance to get accepted in the program since it's highly competitive... I have a gpa of 3.1 / 4.3 right now.
The thing i could do is to get enrolled for another undergrad like a B.A in commerce and get excellent grades .) and then apply for the MFE.
The thing is that I did an internship with a consulting firm as an actuarial junior, and i can go work full time with them upon graduation with an average salary of 45K or so...
I don't know if I should invest approx 5 more yrs in education (B.A + MFE) to become a quantitative analyst...
The opportunity cost for for not working those 5 years is smth arnd 250 000$ but being a quant looks way more exciting for the moment!
what would you guys do? I'll be 23 in 2 months.
Thanks to all
