The Master of Science in Finance program is designed for students who wish to obtain a comprehensive graduate-level education in the field of finance, but do not wish to take the extra time required to complete the broader-based MBA program with a concentration in finance. The courses provide detailed knowledge of the policies, principles and techniques involved in financial decisions made by professionals in corporations, financial institutions, securities firms and pension fund and mutual fund organizations. A significant revision to the MS Finance program has been approved by the faculty and implemented for fall 2012. The new program consists of 36 credit hours delivered over three semesters: fall - spring - fall. Please refer to the MS Finance 2012 [PDF] document to view the curriculum for students entering either program track in fall 2012. NOTE: Financial Engineering has changed to Quantitative Finance for fall 2013. Follow the link below for details.
MS Finance students are now allowed to do credit-bearing internships after completing two semesters - see the curriculum pages for each track for details.
