Master of Finance

Master of Finance

The Master of Finance program at UD offers exceptional preparation for many fields — banking, financial analysis, brokerage, wealth management, private equity, corporate finance, insurance, international business — and many more. The flexibility of our MF curriculum also makes it possible for students to prepare for a Ph.D. program in Finance. Our innovative curriculum, including a CFA preparatory course, as well as hands-on learning at our two investment centers ensure you will receive an exceptional education with our program. The University of Dayton has successfully placed its finance majors in companies such as BlackRock, Bloomberg, Credit Suisse, Fidelity, Fifth Third Bank, IBM, Johnson Controls, JP Morgan Chase, KeyBanc Capital Markets, Mid-America Asset Management, Northern Trust, and Wells Fargo Securities.

The Master of Finance is a STEM-designated program. Graduates of STEM-designated programs, like our MFin program, are able to apply for a 24-month extension to their normal 1-year OPT, making for a total of 36 months (3 years).

Two unique centers for hands-on learning

The University of Dayton is one of a select group of schools to offer hands-on learning for both traditional investments and alternative investments. The Davis Center for Portfolio Management is an investment technology classroom at the University of Dayton providing industry-leading financial analysis software including Bloomberg and Morningstar Direct. Our unique Hanley Trading Center is a classroom where students can learn about the complex world of financial derivatives. All of the computers in the Hanley Center contain CQG Integrated Client trading software, which provides the same global market data, analytical tools and order routing used by professional traders for trading products, including stock options, stock indexes, options on indexes and currency valuations.

We do not utilize any graduate students for teaching functions. That underscores our commitment to quality teaching, taken seriously by all of our faculty.
