  • The program of study for the MSF degree has been designed as a lock-step program which meets all the requirements for a STEM certified program.
  • * Students who hold a CPA or have sufficient prior coursework in accountancy can petition to substitute ACC 401 Corporate Financial Accounting with ACC 423 Financial Reporting I in the fall term.
  • ** 17-month track
    • MSF students in the 17-month track will NOT enroll in FIN418 during their first fall term, resulting in a reduced load during their first fall (17 credits). They will complete FIN418 Financial Modeling during the following fall term.

"My overall experience at Simon empowered me to reach bigger and to reach those opportunities that seemed really distant to me when I was an undergraduate student, such as landing my dream job as an investment banking analyst at a world-class bank.”

"I worked with the Simon Venture Fund for three quarters on two different projects. I was able to visit the client's headquarters, talk to the CEO face-to-face, prepare the pitch, and present it on a conference call with the board members. It was really beneficial to us, especially those of us without much work expereince before coming to Simon."

"Knowledge is being created here, it's not just being taught. Whenever I have a question about finance or I'm just curious to learn something, I could always find a professor who has been studying it or who has been researching what I want to know. That's just amazing."
