MS in Finance Curriculum

Our MS in Finance, a STEM designated program, requires completion of 30 credits. The program is designed to be completed in one academic year on a full-time basis but can be completed in two academic years by students who want to spread out their academic credits. While we prefer students with degrees in finance, accounting, economics, business, mathematics or other quantitative fields, we will consider students with other backgrounds as well. Students must have completed the following foundation courses to be considered for admission:

* Financial Accounting
* Managerial Accounting
* Managerial Finance
* Data Analysis/Business Statistics
* Economics for Managers
