Through direct experience and collaboration with industry, students become grounded in the skills and techniques needed to engage their careers from the outset.
It's been said that it takes three to four years of on-the-job experience to make an impact in the financial services industry. The amount of time might be debatable, but it's unquestionable that real-world experience is essential. That's why master of science in finance students are afforded access to dynamic and applied learning opportunities to accelerate and deepen their learning experience.
MSF students have two distinct opportunities to practice securities analysis and portfolio management in a real-time environment, actively managing more than $1 million in real money. Students benefit from the suite of portfolio management tools available through the Cameron Center for Finance and Securities Analysis.
With help from the acclaimed Cameron Center for Finance and Securities Analysis, you'll gain access to industry executives, leading companies, and alumni through our tailored speaker series as well as study tours to financial hubs around the United States.
Experiential Study Tours
MSF students can also participate in study tours to New York, Seattle, London, and more. Along with unforgettable cultural experiences, students tour companies and factories, participate in marketing events, attend lectures given by executives at leading firms, and network with top executives.
Students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels are encouraged to participate in student organizations as a vital component of the college experience. There are more than 15 clubs affiliated with the Lundquist College of Business, and many other organizations and affinity groups in operation at the university as a whole.
