MS Finance FAQ

Is an M.S. for Me?

“One of the hottest growth areas in graduate business education is a master's degree in a specific topic like marketing analytics, finance or management. These one-year specialized master's programs, are for students with little to no work experience and are an excellent way to gain important knowledge and skills that immediately lead to solid positions in the career of your choice.” (Assistant Dean Jeremy Petranka, Fuqua School of Business, Duke University)
