Master of Finance classes are offered year-round at our Timonium and Columbia Graduate Centers. The program can be completed in 10 courses/30 credits.

As an MSF student, you will find yourself in the company of people from a wide variety of industries, including finance, accounting, management, government/defense, and technology. Students will gain technical skills and develop expertise in financial analysis, corporate finance, and investment management, while those with a finance background will have the opportunity to deepen their proficiency in specific areas to include investment banking, derivatives, financial analysis, and investment analysis. Many alumni hold prominent positions in organizations across the region, and graduates join an elite network of more than 20,000 professionals throughout leading business, non-profit, and government organizations.  

Sellinger also offers an MBA finance specialization in the part-time Professional’s MBA program. Courses in the MBA finance specialization provide students with a deeper understanding of topics related to the field of finance within the context of the MBA program. 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.

Loyola’s program is extremely topical to what I do. It’s geared to the market place; I actually use one of my textbooks at work on a regular basis.
