The University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business is launching a residential, one-year Master’s program in June 2021 aimed at preparing students to meet the growing demand for professionals in the field of finance. The Notre Dame Master of Science in Finance (MSF) is a 38-credit-hour residential program for individuals interested in careers in finance or finance-related fields, from private wealth management to investing and consulting.
Designed for students with no previous experience in finance, the MSF program starts in June with a seven-week module that covers business fundamentals such as accounting, investments and ethical management. The full curriculum centers on quantitative analysis and includes key finance topics including investment strategies, Python for finance, and valuation and financial modeling.
“The ideal candidate has strong quantitative skills from undergraduate studies in science or engineering, and would like to put those skills to use in a finance career, combining values-based leadership and technical skills,” said Katherine Spiess, academic director of the MSF residential program.
The new program is part of Mendoza’s suite of specialized master’s degree programs that provide students with the opportunity to study a focused discipline in an accelerated format.
