Master of Science in Finance


Full Time | Part Time

For undergraduate business majors, the MSF curriculum consists of 10 courses (30 credits): five required courses in Finance and five electives (two of which are recommended to be in Finance). For undergraduate non-business majors, this program is preceded by three prerequisite courses (with grades of B- or better) representing key foundation material in Accounting, Economics, and Finance. These prerequisite course credits will not count toward the MSF degree. 

The curriculum plan for the MSF is detailed in the curriculum outline in the UMass Lowell Academic Catalog.
