What do you think of each of these degrees? I'm seriously trying to decide which one to go for but am not sure as to which one has the most opportunities in Poland?
I have bsc in finance in Azerbaijan. i thought I wanted to do an MFE but after doing some research on the internet the last couple of months, it seems like the competition for jobs is quite intense and you need to have extremely good math skills? I wouldn't say my math skills are bad but they are not EXCELLENT i mean i'm pretty confident that they are above average. which one is better to study in Poland? i want to study poland because living expenses is not as expensive as like in other european countries. thanks in advance..

Yes, poor thing. It's like one of those nature shows where a leopard sites a wounded gnu.... Not pretty, but it's all part of Mother Nature's plan.

Dominic wants the world to be well organized and nearly always predictable. Even a single drop of madness is cleaned very thoroughly. Do we really need to live in such a world?

A MBA or a MS in Finance from a program taught in English in Poland is a waste of time and money. Neither will help you get a job anywhere, so your money would be wasted.

The MFE, on the other hand, is an excellent choice, and will help you get a good job just about anywhere.

Yes, it is math intensive. The prerequisites for the course are C++ programing, and the standard science/engineering sequence of math courses: Differential and integral calculus and analytical geometry for scientists and engineers with transcendentals, linear algebra, differential equations, partial differential equations, multivariable calculus, advanced probability and statistics for scientists and engineers, and formal logic for scientists and engineers. You will have to be at ease with statistical software for finance like SAS, RATS, Gauss or SPlus, as well as with standard math packages like Mathlab. Some programs require at least one semester of pure math, like real analysis.

If you are lacking in any of these areas, take the necessary coursework in your home country. and then apply in a year or two. The better your mastery of math is, the easier the masters coursework and research will be. You don't want to be stuck in a rigorous engineering program with deficiencies in math. Once you get behind, you'll never catch up.

Contact schools to find out all the prerequisites, talk to your professors about how to best fulfill them, and get to work!

Good luck!

Of course, as usual, you have contributed nothing. Big help you are!

Study in Poland

Which university is well-recognized but with low cost for a dual program in MBA/International Business plus IT in Poland?

Basically none offer dual program of mba with concentration in ib with master in it.... It's either one or the other unless you want to pay for both. Imo learn the it stuff on your own, get the certs if.need be, and do an mba.

I'm around half way done with my mba and the mba concentration you chose doesnt really matter. If anything id chose finance bc it's the most useful both in the corporate world and entrepreneurial world.

Also IB is pretty useless. That's what i majored in for bachelors.

Dirk you need to make it clear that you're studying in America, not Poland.

Has nothing to do with his question... Besides poland has no internationally recognized mba programs. I wrote that a long time ago as the main reason why I continued my education in us instead of poland.

The only somewhat decent one is the sgh mba with university of Quebec

Sgh is regarded as the top b school in poland. Here is info on their mba
