Master in Finance


Princeton’s Bendheim Center for Finance prepares students at the highest level to excel in the world’s most competitive industries. Pioneers in financial machine learning and offering one of the first quantitative finance graduate programs, BCF was built on breaking barriers, and we’re just getting started.

What Sets Us Apart

The Bendheim Center delivers a Master in Finance program that is both highly rigorous and supportive. In your courses, research, and career objectives, you will experience the full backing of our faculty and staff as you reach for success. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, focused academics, and collaborative environment, there are so many reasons Princeton’s Master in Finance program is consistently ranked #1. 



Bridging the gap between finance, monetary economics, and macroeconomics, BCF provides fertile ground for cutting-edge research that intersects disciplines. Our students benefit from a curriculum that combines computer science, financial engineering, economics, mathematics, operations research, machine learning, and more.


Theory Versus Applied

At BCF, we take the theoretical approach. We believe that it’s not enough to simply know “how” to solve an equation or problem; we dig deeper to understand the big picture and the connections between themes. 

Through rigorous analysis, our students lift each project to an abstract level and then apply that understanding to many different problems. As a result, BCF’s Master in Finance students learn the why—and the how—as well as the impact on a global scale.


Serving Global Society

Service is infused in every aspect of life at Princeton. The Bendheim Center approaches that mission from the perspective of finance and the macroeconomy. We seek to understand how challenges facing the global society can be solved through monetary economics, fiscal policy, and the ever-growing interconnectedness of the world.
