In this concentration, you'll build the theoretical foundations and gain the hands-on experience you need to excel in the financial services industry. In fact, many of our students go on to pass all three CFA-level examinations.
Seton Hall's CFA-recognized program holds the unique position of being one of the few M.B.A.s to be accepted into the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute University Program — an elite status that's held by just 10 percent of finance degree programs nationwide.
To be accepted into the CFA program, an institution must incorporate at least 70 percent of the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge to its curriculum — which also prepares you to sit for the CFA exams. Many of Seton Hall's M.B.A. Finance Concentration graduates have gone on to pass all three levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.
We emphasize experiential learning, so you can bring new concepts directly from the classroom to your workplace. As a result of this broad preparation, our alumni are spread across many big-name firms and companies such as Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Johnson & Johnson and Prudential. And we keep the entire program, offered on campus and online, streamlined to just 40 credits.
