Advance Your Career in Corporate Finance

With steady job growth predicted over the next five to ten years by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, corporate finance is expanding to create new opportunities for skilled professionals to step into significant leadership roles. These roles will be in high demand and command generous salaries that you will want to be poised to secure.

If you have hit a plateau in your current finance career but have the drive and ambition to move ahead or if you are looking to enter the field with an advantage, our Full-Time MBA career track in Finance—with a focus on Corporate Finance—is meant for you.

You will gain the vital, relevant skills to take on any challenge you will face on your career path through specialized curriculum taught by world-renowned faculty, recognized for their expertise in the field, and work experience in our corporate residency program.

In the classroom you will focus on financial results by company, division, product, or business unit, getting deep understanding of budgeting, forecasting, and analysis. You will be exposed to pricing and expense analysis for new products or global expansion, merger and acquisition analysis, treasury functions, and more.

Working in Boston, New York City, or another vibrant financial center, your six-month paid corporate residency in corporate finance delivers meaningful experience where you will put your classroom experiences to work, gives you strong industry references, and has the potential for full-time employment. This residency is the cornerstone of a thorough and rigorous curriculum.

Lead the Way in Investments

The field of investments is complex and growing. In the next five to ten years the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects positions in investments to grow at nearly double the rate of the national employment average. Likewise, the short supply and high demand of these positions will also carry ample compensation to lure those with the skills and poise to lead.

For those already in the banking or investments industries, but looking to enter a role with more decision making responsibilities, our Finance career track will help you hit that career goal. Our Investments sub track, specifically, features a specialized curriculum and work experience focused on your area of interest.

This program prepares you for roles where you will manage other people’s money. With a deep classroom emphasis on reporting, analysis, tracking results, communicating with clients, and monitoring changes in the market, you will learn from respected practitioners with field expertise, real experience in portfolio management, and strong connections to the field.

The 360 Huntington Fund represents experiential learning in its purest form. The fund is designed to give you experience in equity research and portfolio management. Currently, the students involved manage a half-million dollars of the university’s endowment. This experience paired with your corporate residency at a top brokerage house or investment firm will put the complex theories and models learned in the classroom to practice to make profitable investment decisions in varying environments.
