The 30-credit Finance program at The City University of New York is ideal for professionals interested in upgrading their technical training and knowledge in finance as well as for individuals with strong quantitative skills seeking a career change. Students interested in taking the CFA or FRM certification exams can significantly cut the need for additional preparation by taking the appropriate electives.
The program can also serve as a stepping stone for those interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in finance or a related field.
The MS in Finance is offered as a Zicklin School flex-time program, allowing students to take courses primarily in the evenings, on either a part-time or full-time (9 or more credits per semester) schedule, depending on their needs each semester.
Highly motivated full-time students with waived preliminary course requirements will be able to complete the program in as little as one year (two semesters plus summer session).
