MBA in finace/banking from IT background

Hello all,

I am a software engineer. Now I find that in Zurich most IT companies are finance based. So I think I may go for MBA rather than MS.

Regarding this,I have some ques:

1) Is it possible/worthy to get MBA in finance/banking from IT background?

2) Which university offer MBA?

3) Cost?

4) MBA in English possible?

Thanks in advance,
Sultana

What you really need is experience, MBAs are ok but withoit experience they are worthless

Re: MBA in finace/banking from IT background

a) with no professional experience, you will neither get in (in a good program that is), nor will it be useful.
b) an MBA is NOT an alternative to an MS/MA. It's a different path
c) an MBA is designed as a "fast-track" business education for those who are not of a business background, at least that's what it was supposed to be originally. So yes of course with a non-business background, you can get in
d) unless it's a good school, don't even bother. Waste of time and waste of what is likely still way too much money. There's some 4000-5000 "business schools" and dubious institutions claiming to offer an "MBA" out there, of with at best some 10% are properly accredited.

In Switzerland, there's only one good school and that's IMD, and with some generosity HSG is decent enough (though you'll be far better of doing an MS/MA at HSG than an MBA). Screw everything else, see point d).

I'm sure you can figure out the rest of your own. There's this thing called Google, that should give you plenty of hits on each point on your list.
