The Master of Science in Finance program prepares students for the demands of the global financial environment in all major areas of finance. In addition to traditional general finance courses, the curriculum also includes courses designed to help the student who is preparing for CFA and/or CFP certification exams. Students with applicable undergraduate business coursework can complete the program with 30 hours of graduate coursework. Students without undergraduate preparation in finance may be required to complete up to 39 hours (which includes 9 semester hours of foundation coursework) in their program.
Note: The Department reserves the right to suspend from the program any student who in the judgment of the departmental graduate committee, does not meet the professional expectations of the field.
