Master of Financial Management

‌Move from number cruncher to investment guru with Drake’s Master of Financial Management (M.F.M.). This program’s combination of specialized financial knowledge and broad-based business acumen is not available through any other M.F.M. degree in the state. This unique curriculum is well-suited for professionals in the financial markets, insurance, banking, and investment areas, as well as those in a more general business environment where an emphasis in financial management is required.

You also have the option to pursue coursework that parallels the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam. 

Other program highlights include:

  • Convenience—You can finish the M.F.M. in two years, attending part time, because Drake offers more classes on nights and weekends for working professionals.
  • Affordable—The cost to attend Drake is comparable to or less than most M.F.M. programs in the area.
  • Network—You’ll learn from experienced faculty and your peers, who come from a wide variety of industries and positions.
  • Dardis—The required Dardis Communication Workshop gives you the skills to deliver concise and persuasive presentations in class and at work.
