The Master of Science in Finance Program (M.Sc.) offered by the Department of Finance and Management Science, Edwards School of Business, University of Saskatchewan provides students with a theoretical background in contemporary finance issues and a strong foundation in empirical methods. The program can be used as a platform for students who wish to pursue a Ph.D., and it equips students with a competitive advantage in jobs that have a significant research component.
The two-year program features seminars and lectures in a small class size setting. A thesis is required in the second year. Due to the intensive research nature of the program and individual student supervision at the thesis stage, enrolment is limited. Only a handful of universities across North America offer programs that have a similar focus on financial research at the Master’s level.
The Finance faculty are interested in many different areas of research including venture capital, banking, corporate and international corporate finance, emerging markets, financial econometrics, asset pricing, personal finance, fixed income securities, credit risk, risk management, derivatives and investments. Students may choose their research topic and are not restricted to the above fields.
