MS in Finance

Our Master of Science in Finance (MSF) is a one-year, 32-credit hour degree program designed for actively employed working professionals that will prepare you to excel in the complex world of finance.

Through the MSF program, you will master finance terminology, tools, techniques, and analytical frameworks that are required to truly have an impact in your organization. You will learn how to integrate financial analyses into the context of an overall business strategy. Your expanded ability to make decisions ethically, work collaboratively, and communicate effectively through reports and presentations will help you achieve the highest professional standards.
