  • Optional Concentrations

    Students are able to complete one of three available concentrations: capital markets, corporate finance or financial engineering. Completing a concentration is optional and is not a degree requirement. Students are only allowed to complete ONE concentration.

    The concentration requirements are in addition to the MFin degree requirements. Courses counted toward your MFin degree requirements may not be counted toward your concentration.

    With the exception of 15.455 and 15.457 for the FE Concentration, courses taken to satisfy a concentration cannot be counted towards the MFin Degree Requirements.
