Is it possible to form a strong in finance using my above course work? Or should first do only OR , gain experience and then do MBA in finance??

From what I know, applicants with a background and career goal like yours mostly choose to have a mba degree, after few years of work. Then they would get a position in IBD or counsulting firms.

In my point of view, finance is not just about math or statistic but concerns morn on analysis methords and modeling.
