Masters in Finance prepares students to meet the evolving needs of today's businesses of all sizes, and they will emerge from the program able to address challenges in fast-paced, modern work environments using an integrated, financially-focused approach.
As the business world becomes increasingly complex, today's business professionals must have a diverse skillset. These new business professionals must be agile and approach challenges with a systems-thinking mindset and, increasingly, must have a focused area of specialization.
A graduate masters degree is a great way to highlight these on-demand skills and showcase subject matter expertise, as well as gain knowledge that can be applied to your workplace from day one.
This is a rigorous 2-year programme. Students take such courses as Financial Management, Analysis of Financial Markets, Investment Management, and Economics. In the second year, in addition to courses in finance and other areas, students also write a two-semester long essay under supervision.
