Master in Finance students must take five core courses and 11 elective courses. In addition, a summer internship is required for two-year students who are not returning to a previous employer. Extensive placement assistance is provided to help students obtain suitable internships.
Master’s Research Project
While no Master’s thesis is required, second year students interested in independent research may work with a BCF-affiliated faculty member on a Masters Project in a topic relevant to finance by enrolling in the appropriate courses (FIN 560 in the fall and FIN561 in the spring).
Math Camp and Career Boot Camp
Before first-year classes begin, all new students must attend the program’s two-week Math Camp and three-day Career Boot Camp. Both of these take place on Princeton’s campus two weeks before fall term begins.
Certificate for Machine Learning
Finally, all enrolled students are eligible to earn the newly-available Certificate for Machine Learning, offered in collaboration with the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML) at Princeton.
