Graduates of the program who are interested in pursuing a professional career will be prepared to work in a vast array of institutions within various fields, such as investment banking, portfolio management funds, corporate finance departments of national and multinational companies, private equity firms, venture capital firms, financial analysis and research departments, institutions involved in the trading of financial instruments and regulatory bodies. As a specialized scientific degree, the MSF is also considered a stepping stone for individuals wishing to pursue an academic or research-oriented career, as it allows them to apply directly to a PhD program in finance. The thesis component of the MSF is an integral component that allows students to learn and apply the research process in finance-related problems.
