The Baruch College Executive MSF program is currently recruiting for their new class and I wanted to post some updated information regarding the program. This one year (11 month) masters in finance program provides a concentrated financial education with top flight placements. Classes meet all day Saturday, usually from 8:30am to 5:30pm, and one evening per week from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, allowing students to continue with their careers while going to grad school.

Additionally, students enrolled in the program take part in an international capstone class. Students get to travel to two countries, one more developed and one developing. This provides a great opportunity to travel and experience the global community first hand.

This is a post-experience program (see the Baruch College Master in Finance Program for a pre-experience option) so applicants should be working professionals with at least 5 years of work experience). Below is the 2012 class profile:

 

Gender Breakdown
Male: 54%
Female: 46%
Age Data
Median Age: 37
Age Range: 27 to 45 years
Undergraduate Educational Background
Business & Economics 77%
Science, Engineering and Computer Science 15%
Humanities and Social Sciences 8%

Graduating MSF students are found at a variety of top financial institutions in a multitude of roles. These firms include AIG, Bank of America, Bank of China, Bank of New York, Black Rock Financial Management, Bloomberg, LLP, Brown Brothers, Citigroup, Credit Suisse-First Boston (CSFB), Deutsche Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank, GE Asset Management, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China, JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, New York Life, New York Stock Exchange, Smith Barney, Societe Generale, and Standard & Poor’s, FINRA and many others.

I would also like to bring attention to the new Executive Fellowship being offered. A number of fellowships are being offered for individuals who apply by April 1st and enroll by May 1st (other conditions apply). This is a nice way to save some money for those who are cost conscious.
