University of Southern California MSF Update – November 2023

The University of Southern California MSF program is one the top universities offering this degree and incredibly popular with applicants. I was checking up on the degree and noticed they have an updated placements report as well as some new information. Results are amazing as expected.

2021 Placement Report

The most recent placement report continues to build on this programs incredible success. Out of a class of 86 students, 97.1% of those seeking employment had accepted a job offer within 6 months of graduation. Graduates had an average base salary of $80,879. This starting salary is approximately $5,000 more than last year.

Geographically, looks like most students found work on the West Coast, but there were a number who went to work in New York City and elsewhere. Hiring firms span all the big name investment banks and F50 companies. This program has MSF alumni all over Wall Street and Corporate Finance. A programs network is one of its best selling points and this MSF has this strength without a doubt.

You can see the full report here.


The application window is open for the upcoming program year starting August 2024.

Round 1 December 1, 2023
Round 2 February 1, 2024


Applications will be accepted after Round 2 on a rolling basis on a space available basis. No domestic applications will be accepted after May 31st. For international students the deadline is April 15, 2024, due to immigration timelines.

Tuition changes, but from the website the current per credit cost is $2,197 for Business Graduate classes (500 level and above). I believe (confirm yourself) that this is a 30-credit hour masters. That would put tuition around $65,000.

I will reach out to see if I can get the recent class profile. Couldn’t find it online, but I should be able to get it pretty easily. I have no doubt it is impressive. Hope you found this helpful. Still time to apply to this amazing MSF program.
