The one-year Executive Master of Science in Finance (EMSF) focuses on modern finance theory, applications and analytic skills, providing professionals with the tools needed to cope effectively with today's changing markets. Students learn world financial and investment decision-making in a variety of real market conditions.
Program learning is enhanced by small class size and an emphasis on group work, enabling a student to work closely with faculty and peers rich in professional experience. Students follow the program as a cohort, further strengthening the educational experience and building a network of future business relationships.
Classes are taught by faculty who are experts in modern financial theory and its applications. All courses are taught by CUNY faculty flown in from New York. CUNY faculty members are known for blending innovative theories with real-world business applications to make each class an exciting and rewarding experience.
The EMSF degree leads to careers in the areas of corporate finance, investment banking, management, quantitative research, trading, arbitrage, operational risk and derivatives within investment and commercial banks, corporate treasuries, software firms, insurance companies, and other financial institutions.
Preparation for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) certification exam is another special feature of the EMSF program.
