Master of Finance

MFin Curriculum

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, and an action learning course. Students may choose to write a thesis or pursue an independent study, pending approval by the faculty director.
