MIT master in Finance
Hello everyone. Long-term lurker here. I would like to get your opinion about the MIT master in finance and its suitability.
I am originally from North Africa. My undergrad was unranked, and to add insult to injury I got a 3.36 GPA. I've been working in valuation at a Big 4 firm for a year. Worked on different projects in real estate, financial services, and oil and gas. I did some work on currencies and commodities as well and had formal training for it.
I passed all CFA exams and am waiting for the charter, done the IMC certificate as well and still walking through the ESG certificate. Scored 740 on the GMAT, don't think I will take it another time for improvement though. I have some interviews comingand banks so I'll see where that goes.
Based on this, does it make sense to go for the master's at MIT? Do I stand a chance at admission in the first place?
Keep in mind I'm 23 years old, and given that I already missed this year's deadline I'll have to apply for 2024 class, which means I'll be far above the conventional age for a master's holder. My end goal is either long onlyL/s equity hedge fund.
Happy to hear your thoughts.
