OSU Master in Finance

I’ve been covering the Ohio State University MSF program for a number of years now and have watched the program grow and mature. It is one of the main programs students ask me about, which I owe to the fact that OSU is a highly recognized name as well as a great Masters in Finance program. I wanted to do an update for everyone, specifically on the placement success, as it has been some time since I last blogged about the program.
