At Sawyer Business School, you can customize your degree and earn a Master of Science in Finance (MSF) degree in as few as 12 months.

With flexible program options, you can take courses part-time or full time. Many of our students work nearby in Boston’s Financial District and take advantage of our evening and online classes. Others are full-time students, fresh out of college and ready to take the first step in their careers.

Finance industry leaders help shape your curriculum, ensuring that your courses mirror the challenges of today’s financial market. Your faculty are financial experts–in the field and in academia. Some have worked at major businesses, such as Ford Motor Company, while others have been published in top-tiered journals, such as the Journal of Banking and Finance.

You can also specialize in other areas by choosing the MSA/MSF, MBA/MSF, or JD/MBA joint degrees.

Do you need help choosing your career path? As a student, you’ll take Effective Career Planning, a 1-credit introductory course that offers career resources to help you get where you want to be.

You'll also have access to our EDGE Professional Development workshops, which are open to all graduate students across all campuses. Led by executive coaches and corporate consultants, the workshops help you build your resume, develop professional contacts, write cover letters, polish your interview skills, and more.

You’ll graduate with a keen understanding of many key areas, including corporate finance, portfolio management, investment banking, and international finance.

Many alumni, including David B. Smith (MSF ’99), Chief Investment Officer at Rockland Trust, credit their career to success to the program.

“Suffolk’s MSF was such a valuable part of my success in the investment world. I learned solid skills and creative ways to approach financial issues, which helped me maximize results for my clients. I am proud to have worked my way up through the ranks, and credit Suffolk's MSF Program with opening these doors for me,” Smith said.

The Sawyer Business School is accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for business schools, an honor shared by fewer than 5% of business schools around the globe.
