Go beyond the classroom as a finance consultant

When you enroll in Applied Financial Analysis, one of the Master of Finance Program’s experiential electives, you’ll invest a semester working as a consultant on an actual finance problem for a real business.

During this sixteen-week project you'll go beyond the classroom to work closely with your client. This is your chance to put theory into practice and create value for a real business. Finance consulting will add to your leadership skills and give you a leg up when you enter the job market.

Build your reputation as a consultant

Your GPA matters, but few things speak to your capabilities more so than a history of delivering actual results that impact the bottom line. Whether it’s standing out in a stack of resumes or distinguishing yourself in an interview, your ability to showcase consulting successes can mean the difference between seeking employment and being sought after.
