Looking to get a Master Program to get into finance
Hi everyone, looking for some advice for getting into finance. I graduated in June 2020 from a NY state university. Right now working in low level accounting job but want to get into the world of finance. I was looking at Baruch's Master programs, the most affordable one for me right now. I don't plan on IB (which is impossible I understand) but I want to get into other finance roles, i.e., fp&a etc. I took quantitative finance classes in undergrad like Continuous Time Finance and did really well on it and liked the topic, but not getting any internships messed up my chances of getting into any kind of finance roles. Looking around forums, I understand MSF from Baruch is not highly regarded but it's the only school that is somewhat affordable for me. In your opinion, is it possible to network really hard while getting the program and land in finance? I am also going to start my CFA journey alongside the masters, so do you think I should rather do a more technical masters (Quantitative modelling or statistics) or MSF, while pursuing the CFA? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank You.
