Curriculum

Classes are taught by a faculty internationally known for financial expertise. The degree is offered to students with a completed bachelor's degree and a demonstrated quantitative aptitude.

Study Tracks

While an internship is not required for the STEM-designated Master’s in Finance program, and there is no guarantee of placement, we encourage students to consider the value that internships offer their graduate education.

Full-Time MS in Finance students have two available tracks for the completion of their studies:

  • 10-month program of study (non-internship track)
  • 17-month program of study (internship track)
    • Internships are not guaranteed - students choosing the option to extend their program will be eligible to seek an internship, but are not guaranteed placement in an internship
