An MBA finance student has a number of options to choose from - treasury, corporate finance, knowledege process outsourcing, equity research, mutual funds, insurance, banking technology. The list is endless.

He could be responsible for allocating the surplus funds of an organization or he could be on the trading floor selling and buying various financial instruments. He could also be involved in giving sound financial advice to high networth individuals. A finance student could also be preparing research reports on various firms and accordingly giving recommendations on the stock of the firm.

The current market scenario for MBA Finance students is extremely encouraging in the new economy nations. A lot of the number crunching operational work is being outsourced to students in India and China. The leading investment banks have set up operations in these countries. But the high end client facing roles are few and only the best will get them.
