MSF students develop strong analytical skills, encompassing the acquisition of techniques for valuing investments, capital budgeting, and managing risk. These skills, in turn, allow for a wide range of MSF job opportunities in financial institutions and services as well as in the financial operations of non-financial companies.
Graduates are often already employed in a finance position, but with an MSF degree see career advancement accelerated or receive a promotion. Other graduates have used their degree to change jobs, both within and across industries. For example, a graduate of the program might transition from a position as an engineer in a manufacturing firm to a principal in a financial services firm.
