8-week classes; international colloquium
Mizzou’s online master’s in finance delivers a big-picture understanding of global capital markets, financial modeling, statement analysis and industry ethics.
Classes are offered in an eight-week format. While intensive, this schedule allows working professionals to focus for a brief time on the subject of each class while also keeping up with the demands of their careers.
The online program culminates in a week-long international experience where students will focus on international financial management, markets and transactions. The course taken during the international visit is taught by professors from the host-country university and includes cultural experiences in that country.
The online master’s program is currently accepting applications for the fall 2018 semester. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. GRE scores are not required.
