Financial leadership plays a critical role in determining how a company will meet its strategic goals. Northeastern University's MS in Finance (MSF) program helps you build the skills that are essential for a successful career in finance. The MSF program provides rigorous training in finance, helping you to develop your analytical and financial management skills. The program allows you to pursue study in either corporate finance or investments.
This is a 12-month, full-time program that offers a strong emphasis on quantitative methods and finance theory. Students complete a lock-step curriculum together as a cohort. The cohort is comprised of approximately 40 students, primarily international. Students can build a foundation to work toward the CFA® designation, prepare to enter a finance Ph.D. program, or seek employment in a specialized finance positions globally. There are no elective classes in the Daytime MSF program.
The Daytime MSF program does not include corporate residency, co-op, or internships. Students will, however, be able to take advantage of designated career management workshops to help foster their professional development and hone their job search and networking skills. They will also have a dedicated Student Services Advisor who will provide academic advising and student support services throughout the program.
The Evening program provides flexibility for working professionals seeking to brush up on their finance skills and advance in their current roles. You can choose electives that match your interest in either corporate finance or investments. You can complete the Evening MSF program in 21 months (accelerated 10-, 12-, and 16-month tracks are also available). All classes take place during the evening hours to accommodate work schedules.
As an MSF student, you can also gain practical experience in investing by participating in the University's 360 Huntington Fund. Students conduct research on equities and make recommendations to the fund management.
