BS/MS Finance 4+1 Program

BS/MS Finance 4+1 Program

Joint Degree: Bachelor of Science in Finance & Master of Science in Finance CADP 4+1 Program – Coming Fall 2022*

Coming this Fall, Rowan University is planning to offer a CADP (Combined Advanced Degree Program - formerly 4+1) accelerated dual degree program where students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a Master of Science in Finance in 5 years. Students in this program will take 12 credits of the 30 credit MS Finance program as a senior, saving time and expenses – a full semester and over $5,000 – on their MS Finance pursuit.

A BS in Finance prepares students to pursue career opportunities in such areas as financial analysis, cash management, credit analysis, pension and investment fund management, capital budgeting analysis, investment and commercial banking, and securities management.

Pairing the BS in Finance with the MS in Finance through this CADP 4+1 program develops students to advance their financial career into more advanced quantitative roles. The MS Finance prepares students for financial analyst and financial planner positions in corporations and financial institutions. Coursework also helps students to prepare for the CFA (Chartered Financial Analysts) and CFP (Certified Financial Planner) exams, the premier certifications in the finance field.

The MS Finance program is designed with a combination of quantitative techniques and practical experience and provides in-depth exposure to finance related issues and research. Each course is taught by our highly qualified faculty, who have earned Ph.D. degrees and hold respected national and international reputations.
