Bigger Goals Demand Broader Thinking

You know finance. Now multiply that advantage by diving deeper and thinking bigger at the same time. Earning an M.B.A. with a Finance major empowers accelerated career growth in ways a traditional Master’s Degree in Finance can’t.

Build senior-level business savvy, with a well-rounded curriculum covering all key disciplines, while also furthering your financial expertise. The combination is a formidable advantage for startups and C-level positions alike.

  • Combines core M.B.A. classes, with specialized focus on corporate finance, securities analysis, portfolio management, and financial institutions and markets.
  • Finance major emphasizes theory and analysis, including relevant techniques of economic analysis, mathematics, and statistics.

“I try to help students overcome the fear of time value of money (TVM) concept by teaching that it’s just a simple system with five variables. When students grasp finance concepts and learn to apply them in both their personal and professional lives, finance becomes fun.”
