Hello everyone, I am deciding to take a master degree abroad in order to have a chance to work as a fund manager in the leading investment management company. But I am not sure whether should I take MSc Finance or the MSc Financial engineering. The reason why this comparison comes into question is that I heard a lot from the alumni and current students of MSc Finance that the curriculum is significantly overlap with the Bachelor degree of Finance and when I take a look at the syllabus, that make the argument become even more solid. So,I just don’t want to spend an almost 30k GBP to study what I have already learnt. I then would like to know if the MSc Financial engineering make one a better fund manager when making investment decisions, as it seems more complex and implement a lot of tools in the decision making.
Here are some of my backgrounds
- I am in Thailand
- I have a Bachelor degree of Finance
- I just recently took the CFA level 1 exam, waiting for exam result and looking forward to finish until the third one
- I have some programming knowledge and still learning more
Any comments would be very appreciated, Thanks
