Master of Finance Admission Criteria

The Master of Finance program is open for admission to all students. The program is best suited for students with a sufficient quantitative background to enable successful completion of the program. The most appropriate undergraduate majors include business, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and physics, among others. Students with less quantitative backgrounds may also apply, but should expect to use electives to develop quantitative background or to take additional courses.

We consider each applicant's professional, academic, and life experiences in addition to character and personality. Admission to the program is based upon several criteria, including the quality of previous academic work, personal essays and letters of recommendation, and Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE) performance. The GMAT or GRE is required for all applicants.
