The Arizona State University Master in Finance Program is brand new to the scene and indicative of the overall growth in the degree and interest among students. Previously ASU only offer a Masters in Management, but starting this year students can chose a concentrate finance education as well.
The 9 month long degree program, starting in August, will prepare students for a variety of careers in finance. With a curriculum covering statistics, accounting, corporate finance, economics and risk management, students will graduate with a well rounded financial education. The full course outline is listed below:
|Quarter 1||Statistics for Managers
|Quarter 2||Managerial Economics
|Quarter 3||Fixed Income
Advanced Corporate Finance
|Quarter 4||Risk Management in Banks and Financial Institutions
While the application deadline for this year has already passed it is never too early to start considering this program for next year. Priority consideration is February 1st and April 1st is the deadline for scholarships and international applicants.
The cost of this program is very affordable for Arizona state residents ($31,128), but for non-residents it still comes in middle of the pack with regards to all in cost ($46,562). These costs can be offset by scholarships for competitive students.
As more information becomes available I will pass it along. Hope what I have no helps some of you looking at this new program.
