New Masterís in Finance Offered in Fall 2013
5/10/2012

Logo: Cameron School of BusinessThe University of St. Thomas will offer a Master of Science in Finance, beginning in fall 2013, and the Cameron School of Business will be one of only two schools in Houston that offers an MSF program. The program is designed to facilitate working professionals in the field of finance.

Dr. Joe Ueng, Cullen Endowed Chair of Finance and department chair, said the MSF will be attractive to working professionals because the area is so specialized. Some of the top career fields for UST graduates include finance jobs like financial analyst, banking and business administration.

“Increasingly, there has been a growing demand for the Master of Science in Finance,” Ueng said. “We will attract MSF students coming to UST who would otherwise not consider the Cameron School of Business.”

UST boasts business accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide have earned this distinguished honor, and UST is the only private university in Houston to achieve AACSB International accreditation for both undergraduate and graduate business programs.

For the MSF degree, students will be required to take 30 credit hours: 24 hours of core classes and 6 hours of electives. Students without prior business courses must take at least 9 credit hours of prerequisite courses.

CSB’s Bridge to Business program eases the transition to MBA, MSA or now MSF programs for students without an undergraduate business or accounting degree. Students may take compressed-track courses offered in August, October, January, March or May, so students can start a graduate degree without waiting for traditional semesters to begin.

“Finance concentration is one of the most popular concentrations among our graduate business students. MSF will allow University of St. Thomas graduates to pursue careers in financial service industry,” said Dr. Natasha Delcoure, associate dean and director of graduate business programs. “The popularity of finance has strong marketability because the economy is bouncing back.”

Students interested in the MSF degree program should contact Delcoure at 713-525-2101 or email delcoun@stthom.edu.
