About Program Degrees Offered and Application Requirements

The Schulich Master of Finance (MF) Program is a full-time, 12-month program that runs from August to July of the following year. During this time students will develop their understanding of corporate finance, risk management, private equity, compliance and more. Courses place a strong emphasis on real-world applications and context.

Students also participate in Finance Research Seminars and the Professional Seminar Series, with courses in Ethics and Governance and options to specialize in Capital Markets or Financial Risk Management.

The Schulich MF is a program partner of the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Institute, the global industry standard for finance professionals. This partnership is another exciting point of difference for a unique program that focuses on finance, while incorporating governance, ethics and legal aspects of the industry. The MF curriculum covers a significant portion of the candidate’s body of knowledge, and students benefit from CFA online resources, scholarships and industry events.
