Students are eligible to transfer up to 12 credits to and from the MSF and Professional’s MBA programs.

Through constant classroom discussions, papers addressing real life scenarios and investment portfolio presentations I’ve become as expert at building and communicating sound financial positions as I am building sound structures.
