Master of Financial Management (MFM) – Commercial Banking Program

The Master of Financial Management (MFM) is exclusively open to students who have been admitted to a high-impact learning program at Mays Business School, (i) the Commercial Banking Program (CBP), (ii) the Trading, Risk & Investments Program (TRIP), and (iii) the Professional Program in Accounting (PPA). In turn, each of these three high-impact programs represents one of three possible academic tracks within the MFM. Students applying for admission to the MFM are not required to take the GMAT, GRE, or any other standardized tests for admissions purposes.

The MFM is 36 credit (12 courses) Master level degree that is designed to equip students with the best practices for a career in commercial banking. CBP provides a rich developmental environment by combining formal learning, industry experience, and professional mentoring. Students are able to reserve most coursework while pursuing their undergrad degree.
