The Master of Business Administration/Master of Finance (MBA/MFIN) dual degree program is designed to offer either a general management education, i.e., the MBA degree, to students new to the study of business or an advanced and more specialized business education to students with a business degree and/or significant business experience, along with allowing students to focus more on their studies in finance.

Foundation

Students entering the program will also need to show evidence that they have completed at least one statistics course in their undergraduate degree or satisfy the statistics requirement by taking MIM 724.  Students without a statistics class may either complete an acceptable undergraduate course or a non-credit statistics tutorial offered for a fee by the college.
