Program Description

Master of Science in Financial Analysis

Gordon College

Business scandals have shown us that details can’t be taken for granted. This means that companies and organizations are not just hiring analysts who can crunch numbers, but who will do so while adhering to high ethical standards.

At Gordon, the business model is different. Within our Christian framework, business and financial services—like in the Parable of the Talents—can serve as a medium for social good, stewardship, justice, and love.

Find your fit

This program is great for students from all four-year, academic backgrounds—whether you have a Bachelor of Arts, Science or Applied Science on your college diploma. Gordon’s Master of Science in Financial Analysis (MSFA) is both a good fit for those looking to further their business and finance careers, and for those looking to transition into a finance or business career from the humanities, social sciences or STEM-related fields.

Unlike similar programs, you can apply to Gordon’s M.S. in Financial Analysis without prior business experience or mastery of calculus, statistics, economics or accounting.

Strategically located

Flagship Christian school near the financial hub of Boston

Courses are held on Gordon’s quintessential New England campus—just 25 miles north of Boston—the place where the American finance industry was born. This area is home to some of the most diverse financial institutions in the world.

With leading institutions like Fidelity Investments, State Street, Putnam Investments, Eaton Vance, John Hancock, Liberty Mutual, DWS Scudder Investments, Eastern Bank and companies like Thermo Fisher Scientific and General Electric—where Gordon has longstanding ties—Boston is an opportune place to gain experience and build connections.

Seasoned faculty

Financial industry experts committed to faith

Passionate about the intersection of faith and finance, our faculty have an impressive track record to share with our MSFA students. They are heads of global investment strategy; fixed income analysts; consultants for clients like GE, Intel and Boeing; contributors to the Harvard Business Journal, Fortune and the Wall Street Journal; top-ranked Wall Street analysts; graduates of the Wharton School, MIT’s Sloan School of Management, U.C. Davis and Harvard University; and among the foremost authorities on finance and accounting in the context of the increasingly global and rapidly changing business environment.

This combination lends itself to a holistic vision—one that is not simply focused on career trajectory and personal success, but on the flourishing of those around us.
