Required Curriculum for the Master of Science in Finance

The MSF curriculum provides an intense study in finance, with supporting coursework in accounting. It is a 36 credit hour curriculum beginning in August with a special mini-mester (MSF Boot Camp) and ending the following May. Twenty-four credit hours of required courses are completed during the fall and spring semesters. This includes a 6-hour practicum spread over the August Boot Camp and fall semester.  For the remaining 12 credit hours, students are required to take one Business Strategy elective, one Analytics elective, and two Advanced Finance electives.


18-Month Option

Students coming in as a full time student may choose either the standard one year program or the 18-month option. The 18-month option allows students to spread the 36 credit hours over the course of 3 semesters rather than 2 semesters. This option provides the following benefits for students:

  • Increased opportunity to work for Tier 1 employers
  • International students: Greater time to get acclimated to U.S. business practices
