I wanted to check back in on the Georgia State University MSF program as it has been a while since I last updated everyone. The university is coming up on its final application date and I found some interesting updates on their website so I figured it would be a good time to write a new post. Enjoy!
Fall 2022 Application Deadline Extension to Monday, July 11
This is great news for anyone still considering the program, but was worried that they had missed this years window. I would note that this is the final deadline and I would not expect another extension. This gives you about a month to get things finished and submitted.
2022 Employment Report
The Georgia State University MSF just posted their 2022 employment report and it looks very good. Always positive when a university tracks this information and provides it for students. Below are the highlights:

Graduate Certificate in Fintech Innovation
This is a 4 class, two semester certificate program where you can apply the classes to both an MBA and MSF. You can earn this fully online as well, allowing you to keep working or study anywhere you have an internet connection.
You have (3) required classes: The Fintech Ecosystem, Innovation Studio 1: Innovation & Design Thinking, and Blockchain and Business Disruption. You can then choose one of four electives – Innovation Studio 2: Launch and Scale, InsureTech: New Technologies in Insurance Markets, AI and Machine Learning Applications in Finance, and Financial Data Analytics.
Tuition is $4,058 per semester for Georgia residents and $8,912 per semester for Non-Georgia residents, plus a nonrefundable seat deposit of $250. This is subject to change.
That is the update for now. I will continue to try and post additional information on the program for all of you to review. Keep checking back for future updates on the program.
