UTS is a good choice if you are looking for a career in investment banking as it is AACSB accredited and it's in heart of Sydney.

Hey Ashit G,

I am from Boston, U.S. I will be attending UTS MBA this July, concentrating in Finance and Strategic Management. Hopefully, this will help me to land a job in either investment baking or consulting as I already have 5 years of work experience including financial industry as well as sales.

University of Sydney's master of science in economics is not AACSB accredited however it's global executive MBA is AACSB accredited. In order to get accepted to U of Syd's executive MBA, you need 10 years of work experience.

In general, U of Syd is very well recognized university worldwide. I would 've applied to U Syd, If I had the sufficient work experience. If you decide to pursue Master in Science in Economics at U Syd, it is quiet a good choice. However, if your career goal is investment banking, then I would go for MBA. Do you have any experience in the financial industry? If not, it will be really tough to get in to investment banking as the job market is unstable.

UTS is still good, as they have 100,000 business alumni; so you will have the opportunity to network with global employers.

Thannks Emran for your advise. I had a couple more questions if you don't mind.
Well i don't have experience in the banking industry but i want to start from the bottom as an analyst in IB or in the consulting sector. i completed my bachelors from London in management. Anyways the thing which i don't understand is that MBA is general management degree and could be helpful to you who has experience in IB but don't you think for someone like me who has little experience in Banking needs a specialist Masters in economics or finance to kick start my career?? What about the MCOM courses in university of Sydney or UNSW ?? they all have specializations in finance and banking ?? Lastly do you think UTS is good uni, in terms of placements and career prospects?? If i am not mistaken it does not feature as there in top 8. Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Not a problem, I am not doing MBA in general Management; UTS has 60 different majors to choose from so I am specializing my MBA in Finance and Strategic Management which is perfect for me.

As for starting up from the bottom, I think you should do Master's of Science in Finance instead of MBA or Economics. I don't know if a management degree would help you get in to MS in Finance as the schools require lot of mathematic components in your previous degree. I have no idea how Master of Commerce is recognized in Australia but here in the US, Master of Commerce has no value.

I don't really care much about ranking. UTS is one of the top 10 business schools in Australia so it should be a good school and it is right in the middle of Sydney CBD which gives it more attention from employers over other schools. Business school is not all about ranking, it's about who you know and how you present yourself to the employers. My cousin actually lives in Sydney, he told me to apply to UTS so I applied and got accepted. He said the school has well reputation in Sydney as it provides technical knowledge as well as it is closely linked with the industry.

If your career goal is to get your foot in the door of investment banking, I would recommend you to do specialized master's degree. An MBA would be useless without work experience. I would also recommend you to look in to Master of Science in Finance/Economics instead of Master of Commerce with Finance/economics concentration.

Hope this helps,

Feel free to ask me if you have further questions.

Exactly my point.... but as you might be aware Australia does not offer master of science programs. They either have M.COM with specialization or masters degree in a particular area (eg master of finance ) So i guess your point is to do proper specialized masters programs. Australia master's are two years so they start from the beginning hence my background shouldn't be an issue. But i also did some research on UTS MBA and got to know that if i have decent grades then i can even get in without work experience. And i have checked out their specialisms and i have to agree with you it does look like a good MBA program. Well if i get in do you think it will be better worth wile investment over a masters program in finance. Secondly in your opinion is Sydney the right place to start a career in investment banking ????

Sydney is a major financial district so I believe it is right place to start a career in investment banking. Sydney, Melbourne, London, Edinburgh, Newyork and Los Angeles falls in to same category. Also, Australia is the only country in the world in best shape economically. OZ did not get affected by the financial meltdown much as UK and the US so there is something to learn (how did the large australian banks handle this situation)?

The big advantage of going to business schools in these big cities is that you get to meet industry professionals, and they often visit the schools. Also the lecturers bring real life experience in to the classroom (technical and theoreitcal approaches).

If you decide to apply to UTS, you should apply as soon as possible as the deadline is in June. The next MBA session starts on July 26th when I will be attending. You will be able to get admitted at UTS with minimum work experience long as you have 2:2 UK honors degree or 2.7 GPA with no failing grades.

After all, it is your decision what you want to do. Remember, a MBA is recognized world wide but a master is not. If you choose to work in Australia then a Master in commerce with concentration in Finance from U SYD would be perfect for you. If you want to move back to London, then MBA in Finance would be better option.
