Continental Europe: Master in FinanceWatch
I am a recent Economist form Greece and I would like to continue my studies with a master in Accounting and Finance or Finance. I think the latter is going to be my option.
My profile is:
- Economics Graduate (with distinction - 1st) in a greek university
- IELTS score 7
- Previous volunteering work experience in a Student Association (AIESEC in sales department), organising events (debate championship, conferences) BUT no related finance work experience/internships
- AWARDS: Best paper in Finance and in Human Resource Management in my university, semi-finalist in a Business Simulator Competition
- Research in Finance - Risk Management
- GMAT: not attempt
- Spoken languages: Greek, English, willing to learn a new language
- Previous Exchange programs (ERASMUS) for 6 months at KU LEUVEN
So, my options about a master in continental Europe are:
- KU Leuven MSc in Business Engineering Major in Finance (Belgium)
- KU Leuven MSc in Financial & Actuarial Engineering (Belgium)
- Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University Advanced MSc in Finance and Investments (Netherlands)
- University of Amsterdam MSc in Finance (Netherlands)
- Tilburg University MSc in Finance (Netherlands)
- University of Vienna MSc in Banking and Finance (Austria)
- WU University MSc Quantitative Finance (Austria - I think is waste of time)
The question that is raised is: "Which uni I should opt for my Master in terms of good employability after my graduation“ if you bare in mind that I can't afford an expensive UK master with 20k+ fees. Additionally, I know that you are planning to do a master in the country which you would like to work and live, but in terms of market conditions (salary, job placements) which country should I choose Belgium or Netherlands? Do you know any other uni with a good potential in terms of the above?Deliberately, I didn’t put on the list St. Gallen University (Swiss) and SSE (Stockholm) due to high living cost.
Finally, do you think my profile with a decent GMAT score is going to be able to secure a scholarship/tuition wavier from UK top school?
Thank you in advance for your time
