Vanderbilt University MSF Program

The Vanderbilt University MSF program is extremely popular among applicants every year as it is one of the best Masters in Finance programs in the country. With a very selective admissions process, Vanderbilt puts together an amazing cohort of ambitious and intelligent students, something that shines through when you look at their placements year in and year out.

These amazing placements help sell the program and 2013 continues this trend. Through a combination of top academics, a great career center and high quality students, Vanderbilt is continuously able to place students at top firms and banks year after year. Below is a sampling of the information provided in the 2013 Employment Report (I will include a link to it below).

I’ve also been lucky enough to have a number of students review the program and have heard nothing but praises from each and every one of them. Over the years I have spoken to students who were applying to Vanderbilt and have been able to see them progress in their careers so I personally know some of the individuals behind these placements. Top notch individuals for sure.
