Program Description:

To make sound financial decisions in today’s rapidly changing world, organizations of all kinds need to call upon the expertise of finance professionals.​

Babson is a place to build​ professional competence and confidence. The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) at Babson is a nine-month program that provides in-depth financial and quantitative knowledge combined with sophisticated problem-solving, practical application, ethical judgment, and professional development and communication skills. You’ll enjoy the benefits of dedicated core courses with your MSF peers but have the opportunity to learn side by side in elective courses with those pursuing an MBA, all while receiving individualized mentoring from faculty.

Babson is located near Boston, Massachusetts, one of the major financial centers of the United States and one of the money management centers of the world, which provides for many opportunities for interaction with finance professionals. We have an excellent student placement record on Wall Street, in investment management, and in corporations. Babson counts more than 9,000 alumni working across the financial services sector and its curriculum is recognized by the CFA Institute as being closely tied to professional practice.

While we welcome candidates from all undergraduate backgrounds such as business, economics, engineering, liberal arts, and many others, MSF candidates should have a demonstrated educational or practical foundation in financial accounting, finance, statistics, and microeconomics.

Babson accepts the GMAT, GRE, SAT, or ACT scores if the test was taken within seven years of your planned enrollment date.
