  • Core requirements

    Putting ideas into action is fundamental to MIT’s approach to knowledge creation, education, and research. In the MFin program, this presents itself in a rigorous, hands-on curriculum that offers students the chance to build a deep reservoir of finance knowledge and immediately put that knowledge to work in the world. MFin students participate in action learning experiences including proseminars and a Finance Research Practicum℠

    The MFin curriculum consists of required fundamental and advanced subjects, restricted electives, an action learning course, and general electives. Students may choose to write a thesis or pursue an independent study, which may replace one or more of the program’s general electives, pending approval by the faculty director.

    The following courses are required:

  • * Instructors subject to change
    ** Minimum of one required
    *** MFin students are required to take a minimum of three restricted electives. Restricted electives must be taken while enrolled in the MFin program. Courses taken as an undergraduate at MIT may not be counted toward the MFin requirements.
