    Hey Guys,

    Everybody received their offer letter or acceptance email yet? Also if someone is debating whether to apply/accept or not I guess this should be our thread.

    Although I was accepted to the MSc Finance at Imperial I first got an email stating I was offered a place at the course, and roughly 4 days later I got the condition published on the application tracker thing.

    Congrats.

    My background is not quite relevant to finance.
    I got a Mechanical Eng degree and worked in semi-conductor industry. Right now, I am doing audit with some audit experience in financial institutions.

    How about you, DrPhs?

    Which programme are you in? Finance / RMFE?
    Wow. With such advanced degrees, you should be able to pick up the maths easily. I am a bit nervous about the quantitative part of the course. I haven't done any serious maths for a few years.

    Why don't you go for MBA?

    I'm in Finance. well both courses are very very demanding in terms of maths (RMFE a bit more-depending on your electives as well) which is very challenging and I like it. From the looks of the material of the modules, 'a priori' preparation is required (depending on your level and gnostic level).
    Well, depends on the career you want to follow. I would never trade a good MSF with an MBA in terms of in-depth knowledge (cause we are talking about Finance now). I like it to be focused.
