Master of Science in Finance | 1- or 2-Year Program

The Master of Science in Finance (MS) program is a rigorous 30 credit immersion in the quantitative and analytical methods and tools used throughout the financial sector.

Building on Drew’s two decades of success with our unique Wall Street Semester and strong ties to the financial services industry, MS students receive the training and credentials needed to succeed in careers in a variety of organizations, including banks, financial firms, global corporations, government agencies and nonprofits.

Unique to the Drew MS in Finance program, participating students will have opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills through financial internships, in the real world, after completing classroom coursework. Likewise, Drew’s co-curricular programming includes guest lectures and trips into NYC to visit financial firms, regulators, and even nonprofits centered on promoting ethical financial behavior and financial literacy.

Speaking from my experiences both as a student and now as an alumna, I truly believe that the strongest aspect of a Drew education is the alumni network. Alumni are not only willing to help but want to go above and beyond for the students that graduate after them. ”

Drew's professors did a great job teaching me how to learn in lots of different ways—how to think about and frame problems, how to form and communicate my own point of view and how to apply classroom concepts to the business world. That’s how Drew helped me succeed in my career. ”

At Drew, I had the opportunity to develop an understanding of and interest in financial markets. Through hands-on learning, I experienced invaluable lessons in risk management, intellectual honesty, execution slippage and cost analysis that I now realize not many of my peers can say they learned in college. ”

"Throughout the program, students will participate in experiences outside the classroom, including visits to financial firms and regulators in New York City, panel discussions and workshops on campus and discussions focusing on the ethical dimensions of finance. It's not all about acquiring hard skills. Our students also learn how and why those skills are used."
