Is a masters in finance better than an MBA?

Not necessarily, as your choice to go with an MF or an MBA largely depends on your schedule, goals and work-life balance. You have to consider that these two degrees differ in terms of who they are for. Most MBA programs are designed for individuals who already have a job and some experience behind their backs, while MF programs are typically more geared towards students who directly come out of undergraduate school studies. Eventually, both programs can provide a lot of value, although MBA courses still carry plenty of prestige.

Is MBA in Finance tough?

No, especially if you are already interested and passionate about math and statistics. When it comes to other MBA majors, you can say that this popular degree sits somewhere in the middle in terms of difficulty. Another key factor that can make studying an MBA in finance much, much easier is distance education i.e. an online University such as ours.

Can I do MBA after MS in finance?

Absolutely! In fact, doing an MBA is a brilliant idea after an MS degree as it makes your master’s degree more valuable and it improves your chances of getting a better job with a higher salary. An MBA in finance will provide you with crucial general management knowledge, among other finance topics that can help you to move up in your career life.
