Prerequisites, Transfers, and Waivers

Applicants to the Global Master of Finance (GMF) program should have taken microeconomics, statistics, and calculus. Students with no previous background in accounting and finance will be required to take Foundation courses prior to starting the regular coursework in July.

Due to the compressed GMF format, students must complete all courses in the program; course waivers and transfer credits from other universities are not permitted.

Any transfer credits between Olin and partner schools must be a grade of B or higher.
