Villanova University MSF

The Villanova University MSF program is recruiting for their 2015 master in finance class and I wanted to post an update regarding application round deadlines and other recent updates. 

Application Deadline

Round 1:  Passed
Round 2:  1/15
Round 3:  3/15

If you are interested in the program I would suggest getting your application in as soon as possible. Villanova also offers Fellowship and grants to competitive applicants. You can apply for both when you are applying for admission.

CFA University Recognition Program

The Villanova Master in Finance program has recently received CFA recognition. Why is this important? Well first, not many schools have this. Second, countless MSF students pursue the CFA during and after graduation. Villanova has numerous CFA/MSF alumni and the number only continues to grow.

This recognition also indicates the level of CFA material taught in the Villanova MSF program. If you are sitting for the exams it will be a great way to prep for all three levels. For those not interested in the CFA, the MSF will give you a broad exposure to the material you would see, without going as in depth.

Please note that these are not all of the placements and I still need to do some work updating these. Villanova has the most recent class placements on their website, but I routinely get requests for historic placements so I wanted to post these up for everyone to see. I will try and complete the list and include prior years as well, but I think this should be decent right now.
