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 12 months, or spread out over 18 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.
The Freeman School offers a variety of specializations for Master of Finance students. While no concentration or specialization is required, this option allows students to create a program of study that meets more specific academic and career goals.
