Global Finance

Our Master of Science in Global Finance degree is a lot like our students: intense, focused, and entwined with every aspect of global finance.

Many master’s programs have a global cast, but are general in their approach to business—or, they’re focused on finance, but only in the United States. The Gabelli School MSGF is exclusively dedicated to the field of worldwide finance.

New York City becomes your proving ground for the global financial market. Upon graduation, you’ll apply for jobs with specialized skills that set you apart from people with other business degrees.

Thanks to Fordham’s renowned finance faculty, you’ll understand how to apply your skills to real-world challenges faced by multinational corporations, using state-of-the-art financial theory and practices.

MSGF overview

MSGF degree candidates gain in-depth expertise in topics ranging from financial theory to global portfolio strategies to emerging economies, while honing their skills in raising capital and managing assets and risk for international companies.

The three-semester program can be completed in 12 months (fall, spring, and summer), but if students wish to incorporate an internship into their schedule, the curriculum can be spread out over a year and a half (fall, spring, and fall).

The Gabelli School edge

Taught by leading experts in global finance, and located a subway ride away from Wall Street, the NYSE, and NASDAQ, the Gabelli School MSGF program places students at the heart of the global financial world.

At Fordham, you’ll network with industry leaders, get help toward landing a coveted internship, and perhaps discuss financial theory with a published author. Our deep connections in the financial sector translate into unparalleled learning opportunities and job prospects, while our small class settings with professors often lead to more nuanced and influential letters of recommendation for securing jobs.

Students benefit from a diversity of cultures. Surrounded by classmates from Germany to China, from Turkey to Taiwan, you’ll gain a global perspective during classroom discussions and collaborative projects.

The Gabelli School MSGF program is STEM-approved, offering international students the ability to work for a longer period without immediate need of sponsorship.

Ideal candidates

This global finance degree is a great choice for anyone who is fascinated by the intricacies of world financial markets. The program attracts students from diverse academic backgrounds, so while prior experience in economics, finance, and accounting can be helpful, it’s not a requirement.
