Our two-year students have obtained internships with the same types of employers, often leading to an offer of permanent employment after the internship ends.

In broad terms, students with prior work experience are compensated in terms comparable to an MBA graduate; students without prior experience are compensated somewhere in between an undergraduate and an MBA graduate (who often have a few years of work experience prior to completing their degree). The average first year starting salary of recent graduates without work experience is $90,000, with bonus on top of that varying based on type of firm and work.  Some firms will pay a signing bonus and provide a relocation package as well.  For those students with prior work experience and/or an advanced degree in addition to a Master in Finance degree, the average base salary is $110,000, with bonus on top of that. Base salaries have remained somewhat flat after the financial crisis, and of course students with more experience will be somewhat higher than the average.

"The breadth of courses offered was a key highlight of the program. With the classes I took, I was able to experience what it was like to be both a PhD student and an MBA student."
