Incorporating MFin + MA Econ into MBA
If you go to a finance school like Booth can you essentially incorporate an MFin and MA Econ into your MBA?
Most MA Econ = macro, micro, econometrics, random electives (which could prob overlap with the finance ones)
Most MFin = (these seem to vary more, but I'm listing some common ones) derivatives, stochastic calc, time series analysis, portfolio management, risk management, interest rate/credit models, computational methods
Seems like most of the econ/electives ones are offered and some of the mfin ones are. Given that you take 20 courses, it seems like you could even do 1/5 on random topics and 4/5 heavy econ/finance and come out with nearly the same as the master's degrees.
Can you generally take courses offered by other schools outside of the business school? This might defeat the purpose of the social/networking aspect.
Would doing the above give you a shot at PhD programs at the same rate as doing a master's would?
I'm guessing these will be a little less in depth than getting the master's degrees, but getting the master's and the MBA would be crazy?
