Though most full-time students (3-4 classes per term) are able to complete the program within one year to 18 months, the length of your study really depends upon program choice, your undergraduate record, and preferred pace. The MBA program is slightly longer than the MS Finance. If you have an undergraduate degree in business, prerequisite credits may be transferred into the program giving you an accelerated start.
Once your application is complete and you are admitted into the program, an advisement coordinator will review all of your prior transcripts to evaluate prerequisite credit transferring into the program. As an incoming student, your advisor will contact you to communicate the results of this evaluation and work with you on designing an academic plan that aligns with your chosen concentration, preferred pace, schedule, and format.
Yes! We offer a wide array of funding options to support the cost of pursuing your degree. There are departmental scholarships and assistantships which require a separate application.
