MS Finance Program Options
The Accelerated Program can be completed in one-year of intensive study. This program is for you if you have excellent quantitative skills and can devote your full-time efforts to your coursework. The program begins in the Fall semester, where you would enroll in 12 credits of required courses. Six credits of electives must be taken during Winter session followed by 12 credits of required courses in the Spring semester.
The full-time program offers more flexibility than the Accelerated Program and usually takes 18 months to complete, depending on which semester you begin your study. The program is normally begun in the Fall semester; exceptions can be made at the discretion of the Program Director. In the Full-time program you have a wide choice of elective courses to chose from and you can decide whether you want to take coursework during Winter or Summer sessions, study abroad or perhaps pursue an internship.
If you’re working full-time and want to complete an MS in Finance degree, your work schedule must have the flexibility of taking some of our required courses in the day time. Some courses may also be offered in the evening.
Our dual MBA/MS Finance program allows you to pursue both degrees simultaneously. You will combine the strategic business skills of the MBA with the in-depth study of Finance. Learn more about the MBA Program here.
The Pathways Program provides a quick start into the MS Finance program by allowing you to take up to three classes while preparing for the GMATs or GREs. This program is normally reserved for UD undergraduates.
