  • Students in our Master of Science in Finance program can choose between tracks in financial management or quantitative finance. In either track you’ll earn a comprehensive graduate-level education in finance and learn about the policies, principles and techniques involved in the financial decisions of pension and mutual fund organizations, corporations, financial institutions and securities firms.
  • As a Management PhD majoring in finance, you will focus on three key areas: investments, including capital market efficiency, asset pricing, portfolio management and market microstructures; corporate finance, including capital structures, the market for corporate control and financial management of corporate assets; and financial institutions.

Undergraduate, MBA and MS finance students can enhance their educational experience by joining the Terese Kelly Investment Group, a student-run, real-money investment fund. The group educates finance students on the practical aspects of global capital markets, while providing real-world learning experiences in investment management.
