I wanted to provide an update on the Bentley University MS in Finance program as I recently spoke with the director of admissions. It is a well respected university and should be on the radar or anyone looking for a great Boston MSF program.
The program allows students to specialized in corporate finance or capital markets. The schedule is flexible and includes the opportunity to take some classes online. There is also a program wide push to bring in industry partners in order to provide real world perspective to students. Students also have access to the Bentley University Trading Room, which has a whole range of industry standard software (Bloomberg, CapIQ, etc).
I’ve managed to find a small piece regarding placement information. The following firms have hired Bentley University MS in Finance graduates:
- EMC Corp
- Federal Express
- Fidelity Investments
- Goldman Sachs
- Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
- State Street
This is just a sample, but at least it gives an indication of the variety of firms and placements you could expect. Check out the Bentley YouTube channel for videos and other career related resources.
If anyone is in the Boston area and would like to stop by and learn more about the program, there are a bunch of casual information sessions planned for mid-May and throughout June. You can sign up and check the schedule here.
