Finance Academy

Are you seeking that career edge? No other MS Finance program gives you the Finance Academy.

How do you get extensive real-world experience during your finance program? The Finance Academy.

Combining coursework and corporate-sponsored projects, the Finance Academy spans all semesters of your MS Finance program and runs concurrently with your academic work, giving you an opportunity to immediately practice new skills, network with and be coached by finance executives, and polish your presentation expertise.

As part of a student team, you will work on a real finance project delivering real value for a real business. Over the course of the semester, you will conduct the analysis, make recommendations and present them to a panel of faculty and industry professionals.

You also will attend workshops that focus on creating the right résumé for the right opportunity, and develop interviewing techniques and communication skills that will help you get the job you want.
