The University’s Kania School of Management will begin offering a Master’s of Science in Finance next academic year and begin an online master’s degree this January. The University is already accepting applications for the program.
The program is designed for students interested in financial or investment management. The program will include preparation for professional certifications like the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program.
Junior Finance Major Sydney McNally said The University is smart for implementing this new program, especially the online version.
“I think a lot of people do consider a master’s, but don’t necessarily want to stay for another year,” McNally said. “So, having the online option allows them to still get their degree without having to stay put another year.”
The University aims to help boost the financial industry’s integrity through implementing The University’s Jesuit values in the Masters of Science in Finance.
“(The program) focuses on responsible ethical strategies for financial and investment management,” according to The University website. “(The program will) emphasize concern for the well-being of both clients and the greater global society.”
The program is a total of 30 credits. Full-time students will be able to complete the program in 12 months. For more information about the program, visit The University’s website, elearning.scranton.edu.
