Florida State University MSF Update – October 2023

It has been about a year since I last wrote about the Florida State University MSF program and I thought it made sense to check back in and see if anything had changed. Florida is seeing a massive influx of jobs, especially within the finance industry and this should mean an increase in interest in the states business schools.


This is a 3 semester, 32 credit hour MSF. Students take 10 finance courses (three credit hours each); the Student Investment Fund plus a final Program Assessment (one credit hour taken in each of the fall and spring semesters); and a non-credit Professional Development Series that runs throughout the program. The.program typically starts in late June and ends in early May.

Students can choose a generalist or a real estate focused track.

This MSF is STEM designated and allows international students to extend their visa stay in the United States.


Currently, GMAT and GRE scores are optional. You can take them if you think it will enhance your application, but it is not necessary. Everything else is fairly standard – resume, essays, references, etc.

Deadline for summer admissions is March 1st. 


The MSF program requires 32 credit hours:

  • Florida residents: $479.32 (tuition plus fees) per credit hour. Total estimate program cost is $15,338.24.
  • Non-Florida Residents: $1,110.72 (tuition plus fees) per credit hour. Total estimate program cost is $35,543.04.

I checked my last updated and honestly, not too much has changed. Big thing is the GMAT/GRE being option. Other than that, things look pretty consistent. The program is very affordable and if you are a Florida resident, all the more so.
