The master of science degree in finance prepares students to compete in the financial world. Students gain experience through a rigorous curriculum, internships, and real-world projects. Classes are small and the program is comprehensive.
The 30-credit program consists of ten three-credit courses (nine required and one elective) useful for passing all three levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Examination. Prerequisite courses for the master of science in finance are QANL 6604 Probability and Statistics, ECON 6601 Macroeconomics and Microeconomics, FINC 6601 Financial Management, and ACCT 6620 Financial Accounting for Managers, or equivalents. Any of the four required prerequisites may be waived on the basis of appropriate undergraduate or graduate courses, subject to the approval of the Finance graduate coordinator.
