Both the Corporate Finance & Investments (MSFC) and Quantitative Finance (MSFQ) tracks fuse mathematical tools with a strategic understanding of business decision-making. Washington University’s MSF program attracts applicants with a broad range of academic experience in the areas of finance, economics, statistics, engineering, and mathematics. Prior internship or work experience is recommended, though not required, for admission to the program.

For students who do not have any prior experience or training in finance, we offer concentrated Foundation courses in both finance and accounting to prepare them for the program curriculum.
