What to Expect
Our flexible program offers two levels of certification—Level 1 and Level 2 (advanced)—which you can earn by taking one to three courses per semester.
To earn the Level 1 certificate, you’ll complete three of the following courses:
- Financial Management
- Derivatives and Risk Management
- Financial Modeling
- Empirical Finance
For an advanced certificate, you’ll select the remaining course from the Level 1 set of courses, plus two from a more advanced set:
- Fixed-income Markets and Their Derivatives
- Quantitative Risk Modeling
- Financial Analytics and Banking
- Blockchains and AI
Regardless of which certificate track you pursue, your credits will be stackable toward our Master of Finance degree if you decide to continue your studies.
As an added benefit, you can participate in our seminar speaker series to gain exposure to leading experts in the finance industry, as well as our academic speaker series to learn about new developments in finance. You may also join our trek experiences to visit financial firms in major cities throughout the country, or for corporate visits.
