McGill to Offer a Master of Management in Finance

Program is 12 months long and aimed at students without work experience

Canada's McGill University will launch a Master of Management in Finance program beginning in 2016.

The program will help students develop their quantitative skills and prepare for careers in finance. It's designed for recent graduates who have proven quantitative skills who aim to work in the finance industry or in corporate finance positions.

The program's curriculum covers a variety of topics, including international capital markets, financial economics, and investments, among others. Concurrently, students will also pursue several practical projects, including serving as analysts for Desautels Capital Management Inc., the school's licensed capital management firm.

The total length of the program is 12 months long.

Prospective students looking for a pre-experience master's-level course in finance in Montréal have a few other options. Concordia University's Molson School of Business offers an MSc in Finance, for example, and HEC Montréal has several French-language MSc options as well.

To apply for the new McGill program, prospective candidates should have a Bachelor of Science, a Bachelor of Engineering, a Bachelor of Arts, or a Bachelor of Commerce. Proven quantitative skills are also required. The program is subject to final approval from the Québec government. 

The Master of Management in Finance is set to launch in the summer of 2016.
