Looking for an MBA in Finance? Well, you're in luck because Finance is one of the most common MBA specializations, and it's offered by business schools everywhere. These specializations are so common because Finance is imminently popular among MBA students. And what's not to love? A post-MBA career in finance can be extremely lucrative, because even in times of financial downturns, businesses everywhere need financial experts.

What about post-MBA careers in finance? Perhaps surprisingly, an MBA in Finance can lead to a huge range of different jobs, either in parts of the financial services industry—like banking, private equity, and hedge funds—or in a corporate finance function in a non-financial firm—such as a CFO or financial analyst.

Because these jobs are so quant-heavy, MBA programs in Finance generally include a lot of curriculum that requires number crunching. Classes in financial analysis, financial planning, and financial markets are common parts of MBAs in Finance. Beyond the quant, though, many finance-bound students also find that an MBA program can help them develop the soft skills necessary for this career path: negotiation and presentation skills are also important in many parts of the financial industry.

Although many finance-oriented students head to business schools in financial capitals like London, New York and Hong Kong, MBA programs in Finance can be found all around the world.
