    Hi guys,I just found out the application for 2016 Sep is open and decide to apply for the investment & wealth management.But I'm not sure of my chance of getting in...
    here's my profile: first class in money banking and finance from university of birmingham in second year.. definitely trying to get a first in the final year too.
    just one internship in a commercial bank.. some extracurricular activities
    Gmat 730
    ...and that's all......

    How do you think??
    BTW, how about the career after this programme? is there any alumina/current student?

    It's a quite new course. Apply!
    I may also consider it in future.
    Your profile seems satisfying, I think with a 1st class you should get in.

    Hi!

    What do you think about my chances:

    - First class BSc in Finance and Economics (double major subject) from the biggest university of Scandinavia
    - 1 year working experience in commercial bank
    - A few extracurricural activities
    - Outstanding letters of recommendations
    - No gmat

    I think I really should take gmat, but I don't have time right now. What do you think my chances without it?

    Hi,
    I think you should also apply. Your degree already seems quantitative enough. GMAT is not required, but scoring +700 would only enhance your profile.
    If you were to consider LSE though then the GMAT would be a necessity.

    Friends that I have got into the MSC Finance without a GMAT and 2.1s.

    Again, good chances!

    Hi all

    I am thinking of applying as well in the coming weeks. My profile:

    - high 2.1 in Business related degree (not highly quantitative but with a few modules in statistics/accounting)
    - went to ex-poly undergrad uni (in top 40 uk) (although one of the few decent ones)
    - no GMAT
    Now to the good stuff:
    - have a lot of experience:
    = 2 summer internships - one in swiss private bank and another in well known scottish asset manager;
    = year long placement at well known british stockbroker;
    = i am currently on a graduate scheme at tier 1 IB, supporting the multi asset trading/packaging desk;
    - have obtained the Investment Management Certificate (IMC)
    - am currently studying towards CFA 1 for this June
    - have a lot of extra curricular etc

    I'm fairly weak candidate in my opinion but am trying to do everything in order to mitigate my case. If i get 700+ on GMAT and pass the CFA 1, can i reasonably expect to be at least seriously considered?

    Your toughts greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
