KINGSTON, ON, – Queen’s School of Business has introduced an innovative Master of Management in Finance (MFin) program, designed for aspiring investment bankers, asset managers and financial analysts.

The 10-month program, offered through the school’s downtown Toronto classroom, enables students to continue to work while obtaining this highly sought-after degree beginning in July.

“Over the past year, we have witnessed changes in the world’s financial markets of a magnitude not seen in our lifetime,” said Sean Cleary, the program’s Academic Director and BMO Professor of Finance. “There has never been a greater need for financial specialists with the knowledge and skills to tackle these issues. So it should come as no surprise that The Financial Times has called the master’s degree in finance the new “must-have” degree.”

Queen’s has partnered with the CFA Institute to create a highly focused program offering extensive preparation for anyone considering pursuing the valuable CFA designation, which has been referred to as the “gold standard” among investment professionals. The Queen’s MFin program reinforces the concepts in the CFA curriculum, and is scheduled to accommodate students wishing to write the CFA exams in December and June.

The curriculum is delivered by a combination of Queen’s School of Business faculty and industry specialists, integrating theoretical rigor with practical applications.

“Increasing globalization in the financial sector has created the need for recognized qualifications for those who work in finance,” adds Cleary.
