The Georgetown University MSF program was recently visited by World Cup and Olympic soccer champion Briana Scurry. She visited the campus and spoke to students in the MSF program during their career day events where all the students got a chance to meet each other and hear Briana and other panelists discuss career advice and networking tips. Afterwards she hung around to talk to students and played corn hole.
I think this is really cool and something that shows the kind of effort Georgetown puts into their Masters in Finance program. When I first read about the online MSF program starting up I was a little skeptical about an online experience, but after seeing the technology, sitting in on a class and seeing how responsive the school is to its students, my skepticism is no more. All the students in the program that I have talked about have had nothing but positive things to say about their experience also.
Georgetown has continued to listen to their students and applicants by recently announcing an in person, classroom option for its formerly all online program. This is something that was asked about and asked for from just about everyone I spoke with. It is always good when a program and university listen when their is overwhelming support for something.
I am still working on getting a couple students reviews as I want you all to hear from the proverbial “horses mouth” how the program was. I’ll keep plugging away at that, but I hope to have a couple for you in the next month or so. I also want to get some placement information as that is something I am continually asked about. From what I am hearing people are happy career wise, but a list of firms (for those looking to job switch) would be helpful.
