A curriculum designed to fit your personal interests
The Vanderbilt MS Finance program requires degree candidates to successfully complete 32 hours of coursework. The MS Finance curriculum combines a strong core of required courses with a variety of advanced MBA electives. Small MSF core classes and courses taken with MBA students maximize interaction and learning throughout the program.
The academic calendar at Owen is based on the module (mod) system. Each mod consists of seven weeks, and two mods equal one semester. The mod system allows MS Finance students the personal freedom and flexibility to take a wider variety of electives during their nine-month program.
Below are the two most commonly selected curriculum tracks. The faculty director will work closely with you to design a curriculum track based on your interests and background.
The MS Finance curriculum begins with a one-week intensive introductory course, Financial Economics I, taught during the first week of August. The rest of the courses are taught over the two modules during the Fall and two modules during the Spring, as depicted in the following graphic:
