Others are full-time students, ready to embark on their careers. As a result, you'll meet students from around the world and across the career spectrum.

You can also specialize in other areas by choosing the MS in Financial Services & Banking or the MSA/MSF, MBA/MSF, or JD/MBA dual degrees.

Career-Relevant Curriculum

Suffolk’s MSF is the only program in New England that’s a member of both the CFA Institute University Recognition Program and a GARP Academic Partner. That means your courses cover many of the key concepts on the CFA Exam, setting you up to pass. And if you concentrate in Risk Management, you’ll be on track to earn the elite Financial Risk Manager designation. Both the CFA and FRM designations are valued by top employers across diverse businesses.

Professional Development

As a student, you'll take You as a Leader: 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 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.
