UBC's Finance Division ranks among the leading finance groups in the world, in terms of both research and teaching, and has an excellent reputation for training graduate students who go on to obtain challenging jobs. A list of faculty members, their primary research and teaching interests, and a list of electives offered each year is available from the MSc Program Office.
The MSc program in Finance is a research-oriented degree program. It is aimed at students who are interested in pursuing a PhD degree after completing their MSc degree.
Finance MSc students typically have very strong academic records and undergraduate degrees (or even graduate degrees) in quantitative disciplines such as commerce, economics, mathematics, statistics, science, or engineering. Previous work experience is not required. Enrollment is limited and admission is highly competitive.
We are pleased to offer the RBC Graduate Entrance Scholarship for Women in Finance to an incoming student who will be starting our MSc program in Finance in September 2020:
