Curriculum by Applicant Year

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 program beginning the May immediately following admission with a mini-mester (MSF Boot Camp A), followed by 10-15 hours/week of summer homework and a second mini-mester in August (MSF Boot Camp B). The credit hours are completed during the fall and spring semesters of a student’s full-time graduate MSF year. For sophomore applicants, 14 credit hours are taken while still in undergrad.  This includes a 6-hour practicum spread over the May and August Boot Camps and fall semester.
