MBA – Finance Track

Program Overview

As a finance professional, you’re responsible for maintaining and increasing wealth for families, small companies and large corporations. Our MBA builds your understanding of global investment strategies and teaches advanced skills — such as asset valuation and portfolio management — required for careers in asset and wealth management, hedge funds, private equities, venture-capital and research.

Our program blends the leadership and management aspects of the MBA with the technical financial services credentials of the CFA to sharpen knowledge, instincts and decision-making capability. Whether you see yourself managing accounts for a venture capital firm, as finance director for a prominent bank or CFO for a Fortune 500 company, this powerful combination unlocks a new tier of professional possibilities.

Completion of our specialized track also prepares you for the first of three exams offered by The Chartered Financial Institute (CFA)©. Successful completion brings you one step closer to obtaining the CFA Charter credential, the highest standard of professional excellence within the global investment community. The CFA charter increases your value to prestigious investment banks and firms, as well as your earning potential.
