Program Description:

At the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver, hands-on experiential learning is as important as business fundamentals. That’s why Master of Science in Finance students on the investment track actually manage part of the university’s endowment fund, and, in most quarters, outperform the S&P 500. Our dynamic and rigorous curriculum is just one reason that financial heavy hitters
such as Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Oppenheimer Funds hire Daniels graduates – and why The Wall Street Journal ranked Daniels No. 7 in the Financial Services Industry in 2006. Here, you’ll gain the skills and credentials that open
doors – to investment banks, securities traders and portfolio managers on Wall Street and beyond.

While the trend among business schools may be to start you off with a set of templates and formulas and ask you to immediately begin to solve cases, at Daniels you’ll first master the fundamentals—theories, concepts and practices—and then apply them to problems, cases and scenarios. This dynamic approach reflects the reality of the finance profession, challenging students to think, not memorize. You
come away with the comprehensive understanding you need to unravel complexity and solve problems.

The MS Finance degree builds on the rigorous Daniels foundation of technical skills and on The Daniels Compass – an innovative curriculum-within-a-curriculum that integrates corporate social responsibility, leadership and sustainable development with business knowledge.

The Master of Finance degree requires 62 credit hours. Since Daniels is on a quarter system, you can complete your degree in as little as 15 months. Students have the option of attending full- or part-time, and choose one of two specializations: 1) corporate finance or 2) investment management. A customized concentration is also available.


Daniels College of Business is proud to be accredited by AACSB International.
