Simon School Introduces New MS Finance Program

The Simon Graduate School of Business at the University of Rochester recently launched a 13-month, part-time Master of Science degree program with a concentration in Finance. The New York City-based program is designed for working professionals who seek an advanced finance degree on an accelerated part-time basis.

Starting in March 2011, the program consists of 12 courses of three credit hours each. Ten courses will be conducted at a midtown Manhattan location on alternate weekends. These courses will be arranged in modules of two courses with four weekends of instruction.

The remaining two courses are week-long programs conducted off-site, one at the main campus at the University of Rochester in the summer of 2011 and the other at a European location at the end of the program.

“With our reputation in finance and our analytic, economic-based approach to management education and scholarship, we are confident that our new Master of Science program in Finance will be a great fit for working professionals in the world’s financial capital,” said Dean Mark Zupan. “We are committed to providing our students with the top-tier business education they have come to expect. Their success is our ultimate goal, and at the heart of all that we do.”

The MS Finance curriculum is designed to provide in-depth perspective and the analytical tools to individuals in financial services and corporate finance positions, as well as to broaden the finance-specific knowledge of business professionals who interact with the financial services industry, in fields such as insurance, securities law and consultancy. World-renowned Simon faculty will lead program instruction.
