Master of Finance Curriculum

The Master of Finance curriculum provides hands-on experience and career building skills so that students are job-ready. The program consists of 34 credit hours and can be completed in 10 months, or spread out over 17 months to allow for a summer internship.

A team of faculty members designed the curriculum with input from industry professionals about the types of skills they need in potential employees. The program focuses on developing strong fundamental analysis skills and uses practical applications to reinforce the technical expertise developed in the classroom. Students experience real-world finance through analyzing cases, managing portfolios and building financial models. Students advance their communication skills through a financial communications class, written projects and presentations of their work. 

Applicants are eligible for up to 9 credit hours of transfer credit for previously completed, relevant coursework in finance, accounting or financial communications. Applicants interested in transfer credit should hold a bachelor’s degree in finance (or a related field) from an accredited institution* where the primary language of instruction was English. To determine if you qualify, complete your application for admission and submit the appropriate course syllabi to Pamela Phillips.
