Master of Business Administration Concentration in Finance

Mentors: Prof. R. Goyenko

The Finance concentration emphasizes on how firms raise capital and on the optimal allocation of capital for investments. Students gain expertise in three subfields of finance - banking, corporate finance and investments. They gain an understanding of the functions related to corporate fund management and investment decision-making. This concentration prepares students for multiple careers, including investment banking, corporate finance, corporate treasury, asset management or risk management, among others.

Students must complete a minimum of two required and three complementary courses. Recommended courses do not count towards the concentration but do count as electives and are suggested depending on career goals:
