Master of Science in Finance (MSF)

Suffolk’s MSF degree will give you a high-level understanding of corporate finance, portfolio management, investment banking, and international finance, among other topics. You can earn your MSF degree in as few as nine months through a customized track that lets you focus on career-relevant curriculum.

Suffolk’s Master of Science in Finance degree is one of the only programs in New England that’s a member of both the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute University Affiliation Program and a Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) Academic Partner. Your MSF courses will cover many of the key concepts on the CFA Exam. And if you concentrate in Risk Management, you’ll be on track to earn the elite Financial Risk Manager (FRM) designation. Both the CFA and FRM designations will set you apart from much of the competition within the financial industry.
