Master the Financial Side of Business

The financial world is the foundation of the global economy, and that world is rapidly evolving. Organizations of all kinds need resourceful finance professionals who can make critical business decisions. Babson’s STEM-designated Master of Science in Finance (MSF) can help you develop those skills.

The full-time MSF at Babson provides in-depth financial and quantitative knowledge, and is designed so you can advance your career in as little as nine months. You already have the business basics and career ambition. Let us help you master financial modeling, Python, and real-world problem solving so you can take the next step.

  • STEM-Designated: International students on an F-1 visa may be eligible for a 24-month extension of post-completion OPT to work in the U.S.

  • In-Demand Skills: Get hands-on practice with Bloomberg terminals and other research tools. Develop the financial modeling and coding skills employers want.

  • Fast Track: Earn 30 credits in nine months (two-semester option) or 16 months (three-semester option).

  • Customizable: Half of the MSF credits are electives, allowing you to tailor your learning to your specific career interests.

  • GMAT/GRE Waiver Available: Valid SAT or ACT scores may be submitted instead of GMAT or GRE scores.

  • Stackable: Apply your MSF credits toward a future Babson graduate degree.
