Online Master of Finance


Robert176

Dear all,

I was introduced Durham by Duncan and got admission into its master program in Finance but I ended up not entering the program.

I am thinking of the online MoF at Cass and Indiana University, which were consistently rank high among other programs. As their tution fees are both expensive and no financial aid offered, I wonder if I should take an online master course like this. Is there anyone who knows about online programs? Are they good enough? Should I take a good but cheaper course at a lower ranking school or high ranking school is always better?

Thank you.
Robert

Obviously this depends on your goals: Good enough for what? Some people will be better off taking the CFA. Others will be better off with Harvard's ALM in finance.

Does anybody have an input about the Global Master in Finance from IE Business School in Spain?

If IE has the right network for you, it's the right option. It's almost twice the cost of the Harvard ALM in finance if you enter via the MIT micromasters. so I can't see a reason to take it if you were not focussed on IE's main audience for the GMIF, which I think are the Big Four accounting firms.
