Department of Finance
A finance student’s education requires meaningful, real-world opportunities, balanced by worthwhile classroom experiences. The Finance faculty at the Eccles School are not only committed educators, they are also seasoned professionals and internationally recognized researchers. When they’re not teaching courses on investment, valuation, corporate finance, real estate, banking, international finance, insurance, or CFA prep courses, they might be participating on federal investigative panels or as an expert witness in a high-profile financial scandal trial or publishing their research in The Wall Street Journal or Forbes.
This broad-ranged curriculum prepares students with a full range of intermediate and advanced business skills in the areas of investment, financial management, hedge funds, private equity, and more.
Ranked No. 1 in the U.S. for best value by the Financial Times, the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) degree prepares tomorrow’s financial leaders to react to the ever-changing industry and redefine their own institutions.
The program provides students with opportunities to examine contemporary issues concerning the theory of the firm, corporate finance, market microstructure, contingent claims, and the allocation of resources.
