The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) is a 10 course, 30 credit degree program. The 10 courses are composed of Finance Requirements, Finance Electives, and a Capstone course. Four (4) pre-requisite courses must be satisfied or waived through prior relevant coursework, based on a review of transcripts.*
The program can be completed full-time or part-time, with classes that meet primarily in the evenings, late afternoons, weekends, and online. Scheduling is highly flexible, with most classes meeting once per week.
Students can choose between either a general finance, or an investment management focus for their finance degree.
Admission to the program is highly competitive and is based on several factors, including prior academic record, professional experience, standardized test scores, essays, and recommendations. The curriculum has been designed by the College of Management Accounting and Finance faculty in consultation with the AF Department’s Advisory Board to assist students in furthering careers in finance and in preparing for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.
* A minimum of 30 credits (10 courses) total are required to meet University degree completion criteria. Waiving multiple courses may require completion of additional elective courses to meet the 30 credit minimum requirement.
