Application FAQ

Will I get a chance to work on an industry-related project?

Yes. After your courses you will be paired with a company - small or large - and work on a capstone project that answers a real need with clear and valuable outcomes.

It’s been a while since I studied math. How can I catch up?

We will offer a compulsory presession program in the first two weeks of September. It will cover what you need in calculus, linear algebra or probability theory.

When are classes held?

Core courses and elective  courses owned by the MS in Finance are held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and Friday mornings.

Some electives offered elsewhere within the Department or at other Departments could be any other weekday timeslot.

I am working at the moment and considering my options. What is the workload of the program?

The full-time program demands about a 30-hour workload per week of workload from September to April. This includes classes as well assignments and term projects. Working on the capstone project in May and June means a somewhat lower workload. This is of course an average. If you have strong background in any finance related area, or work experience in finance, the workload could be less.

I have a full time job, can I still apply?

Yes, we have a part time version. It means the same classes, same time slots, and students may decide to complete the program in one or two years. It is required to take all mandatory courses in the first year for all students. Mandatory courses take place on Tuesdays and Fridays in the afternoon. Remaining electives and the Capstone project may be completed in the second year. Consider a workload of about 30 hours per week during the first year.
