Accelerated Program

Incoming freshmen with a strong high school academic performance and an expressed interest in graduate accounting study are eligible to join our accelerated program, which leads to the completion of both a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master of Science in Finance and Investment Management (MSFIM) degree in five years.

The graduate program in finance and investment management focuses on quantitative techniques for asset valuation, product development and risk management. Students enhance expertise through case studies, internships, problem-based learning experiences and extensive interaction with practitioners during this unique finance program. Additionally, the curriculum directly prepares candidates for the Chartered Financial Analyst® examination and Financial Risk Management certification.
