Our immersive program offers a rigorous, discipline-based course of study that’s rooted in advanced quantitative methods in finance.

At the same time, you’ll build the strong critical-thinking and analytical skills that today’s finance firms seek. We don’t teach you what to think—we teach you how to think.

You’ll also receive course flexibility, career support, and the option to apply course credit toward earning a Booth MBA.

You will take a co-curricular course, Succeeding in the Workplace, as a complement to your foundational coursework. The course begins during Boothcamp and continues into the Autumn Quarter.

Master in Finance Curriculum

Our MiF curriculum offers a deep dive into advanced topics in finance and quantitative methods. Core courses give you a solid grounding in the building blocks of finance, while electives allow you to hone your skills in a particular area of interest and stand out in the job market.

You’ll take four core courses and nine electives for a total of 13 courses. Five of your electives will be in finance, and you will choose the remaining four from a large subset of MBA courses. You can tailor your finance electives to match your career goals by choosing one of three areas of specialization. Students who have already taken finance earlier in their education may qualify for core course substitutions, which may allow them to jump right away into advanced electives.

Students start taking courses in the Autumn Quarter and spread their coursework over four quarters, including a required summer internship.
