Sick man^ I have no inclination to pursue either, but quant oriented funds (DE Shaw, Point72, etc .) pref that over an MBA. Take your blinders off VP.. your IB is showing

likesmart

I know someone who jumped from an IT role to a research role via MSF. If you want something more quantitative/analytical, then MSF is the way to go. If you want to go super technical/quant then the MFE, MS in math/CS, potentially PhD track is your best bet

I did an MSF. It’s usually just the finance classes from the MBA (cuts out the pricing, ops, speaking fluff classes; though we had a little exposure to each). There are more quant focused programs as mentioned by IBA1, with a different target career path

Do top schools offer MSF programs now? I always think of an MBA as 90% for the networking and I feel the MSF is less-good for that.

I entered law school in my late 30's as a second career. I have strong pre-law experience (Executive of small company, 60 employees, $4m budget, MBA, etc.) and law school credentials (Top 10%, Managing Editor of Law Review). I'm willing to make less coming out of school than I did before, but want to ultimately land as in-house counsel with a decent wlb and make $200k+. I'm looking for advice on the best path to get there and how long I can expect it to take.

Seriously now, how do you handle the feeling of a huge step back when joining a different consulting company after you’ve got a lot of experience and they micromanage you and use you mainly for menial tasks? How to keep motivation up?
