Master of Science in Finance (MSF) Program Information


MS Finance

Florida Atlantic University's MS in Finance Program is an intensive 16-month program offering exceptional quality.

The MS in Finance allows participants to continue their professional responsibilities while earning a nationally-accredited MS degree as full-time graduate students. Each class begins and progresses through the program as a group, sharing the same sequence of classes and educational experiences.

Students can obtain Bloomberg Certification and attend preparation courses for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation.

Many corporations nominate and sponsor fast-track employees for the MS in Finance Program. It is an effective way to ensure that they will have qualified, professionally credentialed managers for the future.

The Master of Science in Finance degree program begins on Boca Raton Campus every fall and spring semester.

COVID -19 Message
The On-campus Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program is delivered through live synchronous sessions during scheduled class days and times on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Additionally, asynchronous class lectures and mini-lectures are recorded and accessible on demand to enhance class study in our digital learning management system, Canvas.

When Florida Atlantic University is permitted to reopen our campuses for physical attendance—as determined by the State University System—Executive Education will resume on-campus classroom attendance according to established regulations.  Physical attendance in the classroom will be optional until effective regulations allow for a full return to on-campus immersion.
