The purpose of the MS in Finance program is to provide students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to be innovative, well-informed, and experienced finance professionals. The curriculum is based on the financial theory and empirical methods employed by professionals practicing corporate finance, financial security valuation, financial modeling, portfolio management, financial services management, financial risk management, and corporate governance. In addition, students are expected to leverage the educational opportunities afforded by the Lerner Trading Center and the Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance. As a result, students will obtain training and experience valued by corporations, financial service firms, consulting firms, and government agencies. Additionally, if desired, students may tailor their program to enhance progress through a subsequent doctoral degree program. The 30-credit degree program may be completed in nine months by a full-time student, admitted in the fall semester with a strong background in finance in the accelerated program or completed within 18 months in the regular full-time program.
A dual degree in the MBA & MS in Finance programs is available to graduate students.
The Finance Program also offers a 4+1 program that provides the opportunity for talented students to complete a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s Degree in Finance in less time, less cost as 6 credits of graduate-level Finance courses in the Senior year may be dual-counted toward both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. Total credits required for both degrees is 145 (rather than 151).
The University of Delaware published graduate student tuition base rate for graduate credit in 2016-17 is $1,720 per credit hour. UD Deans may offer adjustments to students in specific programs that may reduce the per credit costs.
