The University of San Francisco offers a Master of Science degree in Financial Analysis (MSFA) that provides rigorous training in quantitative finance and economics.
Financial analysis has evolved from an art to a science in the past three decades. This development has placed strict demands on practitioners to master the complex analytical and quantitative methods increasingly used in financial markets.
The MSFA program is offered in two convenient formats - the Professional program (two years) and the Accelerated program (one year). See the Program Overview page for details.
The financial and investment professions demand a specialized set of skills and knowledge to meet the evolving needs and responsibilities of the financial field. In providing the training valued by industry, particular focus is given to the set of skills embodied and required to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) designation.
MSFA faculty include both USF professors and Bay Area financial professionals who deliver a program that is strong in both theory and practical applications for today's financial markets. The MSFA program is one that upgrades quantitative and analytical skills while mastering the knowledge required of financial practitioners.
