Program Overview

The Olin and Yonsei University Global Master of Finance program admits one class per year. The program emphasizes both academic rigor and practical applications, preparing students for the challenges of modern global financial markets.

In the condensed format, your courses are divided into five sessions. You spend a summer at Olin; fall, winter, and spring academic terms at Yonsei; and a second summer at Olin. All told, you take 24 credit hours at Olin and 30 at Yonsei. Upon completion of the program, graduates earn a Master of Science in Finance degree from Washington University and Global MBA from Yonsei University.

During your second summer session, you participate in immersion courses on financial markets in New York and on legislative processes, policymaking, enforcement agencies, and the Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C. Courses in the U.S. capital are offered in collaboration with Brookings Executive Education, a partnership between Washington University in St. Louis and the Brookings Institution, an internationally acclaimed public policy research organization.
