Overview

The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) Program prepares non-finance undergraduates to launch finance-related careers without the full-time work experience required by an MBA. Students with a quantitative undergraduate degree in areas such as economics or STEM, combined with the MSF, are highly sought after by corporate, government, consulting and financial services employers.

  • Texas A&M Sophomores and Juniors:  Accelerated Admissions provides Texas A&M undergraduates with an early start to increase their career/internship opportunities. Students take 11-14 hours of MSF courses at the undergraduate tuition rate. The Accelerated Admissions program also supports sophomores and juniors who are planning on graduating in December.
  • Seniors and Beyond: The MSF program welcomes Texas A&M seniors/graduates, and graduates from other universities.
  • International Students: The program provides international students with a US-based finance education.  Finance majors from non-US universities are eligible for admissions . See the International Admissions page, for more information on how to apply as an international student. Note: The program is not considered a STEM program for work visa purposes.

The MSF program leverages a strong academic platform to achieve 90%+ career launch success through:
