I recently got accepted to couple MBA programs at Toronto Rotman and UCLA Anderson - I got rejected by other top tier schools because of the fierce competition for 2010 admission. Recently I was contacted by Berkeley Hass MFE program, with a possible chance of admission. I have read many postings here and understand that MFE and MBA are much different programs. MFE focusses on quant/C++ whereas MBA is more about business management and leadership. I'm a professional civil engineer looking to transition into a financial industry - possibly a trader position or in investment management. My dilemma is that while I would prefer MBA, Anderson MBA isn't so strong for finance career prospects, and was thinking MFE from Haas would be better for me. Please comment.
