MBA/MS Finance

MBA/MSF Degree Overview

The MBA/MS in Finance Accelerated Pathway is intended for students who want to pursue both the Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Finance concurrently or successively. The MBA typically requires 36 credits (4 x 1.5-credit courses, 10 x 3-credit courses) while the MS in Finance requires 30 credits (10 x 3-credit courses). The MBA/MSF accelerated pathway allows the sharing of up to 5 courses to satisfy the requirements of both degrees. The MBA/MSF pathway requires 51 credits (4 x 1.5-credit courses, 15 x 3-credit courses)* in total and can be completed at the student’s desired pace through various course formats.

Alumni that have completed an MBA in Finance or MS Finance at Rowan University who are interested in a potential “accelerated pathway” to pursue an additional graduate business degree may transfer up to 15 credits (5 x 3-credit courses) from their first graduate business degree into the second. For those that have completed an advanced graduate business degree at another AACSB-accredited business school, they may transfer up to 9 credits (3 x 3-credit courses) from their first graduate business degree into the second.
