Masters in Finance Schools

Masters in Finance Schools

Because most graduate degrees in finance come through schools of business, offered as a major in the MBA program, and because the MBA has been the most popular graduate degree in the country for many years, there are programs in finance at universities of every size, age and quality. The schools we have listed here have all achieved accreditation for their programs. Some of them qualify students for certification as various types of financial specialists. The program at Northeastern is not offered as part of a business degree, but rather is a MS in Finance offered without the business framework. There are also degrees available in Financial Mathematics and Financial Engineering; we have not addressed those here because they are specialized fields without the career opportunities that a standard Masters in Finance can offer.

  1. Capella University offers a forty eight credit online MBA program with a specialization in Finance that provides course work focusing on investment and portfolio management, international finance, bank management, risk management, and financial markets. Two of the core courses focus on business basics that are often overlooked: those courses are in Marketing & Brand Management and in Operations & Process Management. The upper level finance courses include Investment & Portfolio Management, Regulatory & Ethical Business Issues, and Corporate Finance Analysis.
  2. Post University has an accredited online MBA in Finance degree that is designed for working professionals. People who need a graduate credential to move along on an existing career path will benefit from this program's flexibility and some of the pragmatic course material included in the curriculum. Among the unusual and potentially useful course are Public Finance Policy & Application, Competitive Intelligence, and Managing Financial Institutions. The courses are offered in eight week modules; students typically take two courses per module. The MBA in Finance takes one year to eighteen months to complete.
  3. Jones International University offers the MBA in Finance as an online degree for professionals who have some work experience and who wish to obtain a graduate level credential. The MBA core courses include classes in Financial Management and in Economics & Competitive Strategies, a course oriented to global business pursuits. The finance specialization courses include classes in Corporate Finance, Advanced Corporate Finance, and Financial Management for Multinational Corporations. The capstone course covers multiple topics which are management oriented: the required material is in Effective Governance Systems, Strategic Planning for Organizational Growth, Business Models, and Leadership Systems.
  4. Northeastern University has a Master of Science in Finance degree that is offered independent of the MBA program. It can be taken online or on campus. This degree includes substantial coursework in quantitative and analytical studies, so students will need some mathematics background and a level of computer literacy that provides for the ability to work with data software. There are elective courses that provide the skills for a career in investment counseling: these include Fixed Income Securities & Risk and Portfolio Management. Among the corporate finance tools provided in the program are classes in Strategies for Companies in Crisis, Management of Financial Services Firms, and Valuation & Value Creation.
  5. Kaplan University offers the MBA in Finance as one of eight possible areas of specialization. The other option that might be of interest to students considering a degree in Finance is the MBA in Entrepreneurship, also a Kaplan option and also an online degree program. The core courses for the MBA cover Financial Management, Global Economics, and Business Analytics as well as the basics of Financial Accounting Principles & Analysis. Kaplan's MBA in Finance can be completed in as little as twelve months with full time study and some credits that can be transferred.
