The Master of Science in Finance (M.S.F.) is offered through the Graduate School of Management at Clark University. The Graduate School of Management strives to develop: 1) outstanding leaders and managers of society’s enterprises; 2) through a high quality educational experience; 3) carried out in an innovative community of learning; 4) by a faculty oriented toward research and service.


Departmental eligibility requirements

The M.S.F. program is open to students from any undergraduate major. Prerequisite courses are required. Prospective M.S.F. students need to have completed ECON 010 , ECON 160 /PSYC 105  (or comparable statistics course), MATH 120 , MGMT 101  and MGMT 240  with a grade of B- or higher prior to the start of their senior year (students can be enrolled in these courses in the semester that they are applying or can take them in the summer before their senior year). AP credit may count towards the Math prerequisite requirement. However, Clark’s M.S.F. degree is a very quantitative-based program, and students are encouraged to take some quantitative courses during their undergraduate years to help them prepare if they have AP credit for the math prerequisite.



Program of Study

The Accelerated B.A./M.S.F. program requires 10 graduate course units.


Senior year - fall/spring

Graduate courses students MUST take in the senior year include:

Students then take the remaining units for the M.S.F. degree in their 5th year.

Internship Requirement


Every MSF student who does not have 3 or more years of full-time work experience is required to complete an internship prior to the completion of the graduate degree. Internships completed as an undergraduate cannot fulfill the MSF internship requirement. MSF students are encouraged to complete their internship requirement in the summer between their senior year and fifth year.
