MBA - Finance Track

To be successful in finance requires the ability to quickly adapt and make strategic decisions amidst ever-changing market conditions. For those pursuing careers in asset valuation or portfolio management, the finance track will prepare you with the skills needed to analyze market conditions, assess risk and make effective wealth management decisions.

Students who select the finance track will complete the same number of credits as required for a traditional MBA, but will explore coursework centered around the finance industry. The coursework of this program also covers the body of knowledge of the first level (Level I) exam offered by the CFA Institute.


When you pursue the finance track, you'll earn the same number of credits as Quinnipiac University's traditional MBA program. The first 28 credits of the program are the MBA core requirements. You may then take specialized, finance-focused courses to complete the 46 credits needed to earn your MBA. If you are interested in pursuing the finance track, we recommend that you indicate this to your adviser as early in the program as possible.
