The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has unveiled its latest offering, the Master in Finance Program, set to commence in fall 2024. Tailored for accomplished recent college graduates in quantitative fields, the program is designed to enhance their analytical aptitude and provide a competitive edge in launching a career in finance. The curriculum features four core courses, “Investments,” “Corporation Finance,” “Data Analytics,” and “Financial Accounting,” taken as a cohort, with an additional nine electives for a total of 13 courses. Students can opt for either a 15-month standard track or a more accelerated 10-month track, allowing for flexibility in program completion.
“Chicago Booth’s finance faculty are the best in the world. They developed modern finance theory and have shaped the course of financial knowledge and markets for more than 100 years,” said Madhav Rajan, Booth Dean and George Shultz Professor of Accounting in the school’s announcement. “We are excited to bring our transformative approach – and the latest innovations in finance – to talented, analytical college graduates, jump-starting their careers and putting them at the frontier of this rapidly advancing field.”
The program not only immerses students in the foundational knowledge of finance, but also offers specialized tracks in Asset Management, Investment Banking, Fintech, or Research in Finance. Furthermore, career development is integrated throughout the program, with initiatives such as internships and a Leaders in Finance Speaker Series, facilitating networking opportunities with top financial firms. Upon completion, graduates emerge with knowledge of the rapidly evolving financial industry and a diverse skill set extending beyond theoretical realms, including expertise in cutting-edge technologies like A.I., machine learning, big data, blockchain technology, fintech, and current topics in investment banking.
