​Master of Science in Finance

Develop highly targeted skills by selecting the curriculum track best suited to your career aspirations.

Jacob talks about the MSF program The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) is a rigorous and comprehensive graduate program that offers in-depth training in securities research, asset management, derivative pricing, and fixed income for students pursuing specialized finance careers.

  • Corporate Finance & Investments (MSFC) track is 11-months long and includes a significant amount of course work alongside finance-oriented MBA students.
  • Wealth and Asset Management (MSFWAM) track is 11 months long and includes many classes with MBA students as well as access to WAM events with area companies.
  • Quantitative Finance (MSFQ) track is 17-months long and develops a skill set similar to a Financial Engineering program while still including course work in corporate finance, investments and financial markets. Prior computer programming knowledge is helpful, but not required.
  • Global Master of Finance (GMF) is four- to six-semesters long and pairs the MSF degree with a second program at one of our partner institutions.

All tracks fuse mathematical tools with a strategic understanding of business decision-making. See the Employment Report (PDF) for recent job function and compensation statistics.

Washington University’s MSF program attracts applicants with a broad range of academic experience in the areas of finance, economics, statistics, engineering, life sciences, and mathematics. Prior internship or work experience is recommended, though not required, for admission to the program.

For students who do not have any prior experience or training in finance, we offer concentrated Foundation courses in both finance and accounting to prepare them for the program curriculum.
