The Master of Science in Global Finance degree at Fordham University  is a lot like our students: intense, focused, and entwined with every aspect of global finance.


Global Finance degree candidates gain in-depth expertise in topics ranging from financial theory to global portfolio strategies to emerging economies, while honing their skills in raising capital and managing assets and risk for international companies.

The three-semester program from Fordham University can be completed in 12 months (fall, spring, and summer), but if students wish to incorporate an internship into their schedule, the curriculum can be spread out over a year and a half (fall, spring, and fall).

The Gabelli School edge

Taught by leading experts in global finance, and located a subway ride away from Wall Street, the NYSE, and NASDAQ, the Gabelli School MSGF program places students at the heart of the global financial world.

At Fordham, you’ll network with industry leaders, get help toward landing a coveted internship, and perhaps discuss financial theory with a published author. Our deep connections in the financial sector translate into unparalleled learning opportunities and job prospects, while our small class settings with professors often lead to more nuanced and influential letters of recommendation for securing jobs.

Students benefit from a diversity of cultures. Surrounded by classmates from Germany to China, from Turkey to Taiwan, you’ll gain a global perspective during classroom discussions and collaborative projects.
