Not only is our Master's program known for its outstanding curriculum, but the caliber of our student body is top quality. As a potential candidate, you should recognize that admission to the program is highly competitive and we select only those students who appear most likely to succeed in meeting the challenges of our demanding and rigorous program.
Financial expertise, in-depth knowledge and practical hands-on training have become crucial for the success of companies and for the career of working professionals. It is for this reason that the MSF program at the George Washington University was introduced. The program started in 1993. Students complete the degree in 12 months by attending the intensive program or in 24 months by attending the regular program.
Going through this website will give you a clear idea of the time and effort necessary to attain the MSF degree at GWU. You will see that the personal investment involved is considerable, but our experience suggests that the benefits are long-term and significant. If you are an employer considering sponsoring people in the program, you should view this as you would any other investment. The costs are far outweighed by the benefits of having a highly trained competent finance professional on your staff.
