MSF/MBA Dual Degree
The MS in Finance/MBA is a partnership with the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), for students currently pursuing an MBA with CKGSB as well as recent MBA graduates from the school.
MSF/MBA students gain the technical skills to create innovative solutions in all aspects of management and finance. The part-time program is designed for working professionals advancing in their careers, to allow flexibility to take classes online, featuring mostly asynchronous learning activities with a few recommended or required synchronous (real-time) activities.
This program empowers working professionals to hone the skills they need to advance quickly in their careers within a flexible format. A significant portion of the MSF curriculum is devoted to the CFA Institute’s Candidate Body of Knowledge, preparing students to sit for the CFA exams.
Who can apply and the application process:
First and second year CKGSB MBA students, and alumni who completed their CKGSB MBA degree within the last 2 years, may apply.
New applicants who will be starting the MBA at CKGSB in Fall 2021 may apply to start the MSF/MBA dual program in Fall 2022.
To be qualified to be part of the dual degree program, applicants must be current CKGSB students or alumni from MBA program. Applicants also need to complete the new student application process to JHU Carey https://carey.jhu.edu/programs/admissions/how-to-apply.
The program requires 30 credits, some of which (up to four credits) may be satisfied using courses transferred from CKGSB. Students are admitted in the Fall semester each year and must follow a 20-month, cohorted program sequence.
The curriculum for the MSF portion of the MSF/MBA is based primarily on the Carey Business School MSF Part-Time curriculum with some adjustments specific to this dual degree program. Students must consult with an academic advisor to ensure they take the approved courses for this program in the approved sequence. All Carey MSF courses are 2 credits.
