“The new MS in Finance and Analytics is an exciting addition to our prestigious portfolio of online graduate business programs,” said Dean of the Leavey School of Business Caryn Beck-Dudley. “This program provides a unique opportunity for students to craft their own curriculum with 16 units of elective credit and also allows them to expand their knowledge in specific subject areas like valuation and financial engineering to best prepare them to become future finance leaders.”

“The workplace is rapidly evolving and the financial sector as a whole is expected to grow exponentially over the next nine years. Our Online MSFA can prepare you with the knowledge, skills, and tools to take you to the next level and has evolved from our existing MSFA program  ranked #27 by TFE Times 2020 Best Master of Finance Programs.” shares Toby McChesney, Sr. Assistant Dean of Graduate Business Programs.

“We are exceptionally proud of our partnership with the Leavey School of Business, and what we are able to create together,” said Beth Hollenberg, President of Everspring, an innovative online program support provider. “The MS in Finance and Analytics created by the Leavey faculty and administration is exactly the kind of forward-thinking, market-relevant program needed to meet the needs of a now disrupted workforce, who need these valuable skills to move their careers and the economy forward.”
