The Master of Science (M.S.) program in Banking and Finance is designed to equip graduate students with specialized analytical skills applicable to their professional interests in corporate finance, investment appraisal/cost-benefit analysis, project finance, financial risk management, commercial and investment banking, international finance, and financial economics. The graduate students may earn their M.S. degree in Banking and Finance in two ways: With thesis or non-thesis option. With thesis option, students take four core courses plus three elective courses and a master’s thesis. With the non-thesis option, students take five core courses plus the completion of a further five elective courses and a term paper. In addition to the MS degree, the program has strong and established international collaborations.
