Keys to Completing the Finance (M.S.) Degree Program

In order to successfully complete the program, you will be required to complete 30 credits of coursework, which includes a final capstone. The capstone may be completed through an internship, suggested for students that are currently working and/or seeking to enter the workforce directly upon graduation; or thesis of original research, suggested for students wishing to pursue a Ph.D. or other terminal degree.
