Hult’s Master of Finance program offers a practical education for professionals pursuing careers in corporate finance and international business.
Gain a competitive edge in the world of corporate finance
In today’s volatile economic times, the role of the CFO and the finance team is expanding rapidly. Corporate finance jobs and salaries have grown rapidly in the last few years. Good financial decisions can maximize the value of the firm, and poor decisions can quickly put it at risk. Corporate finance and accounting professionals have a bird’s-eye view of the business as they “follow the money,” looking for ways to free up capital, decrease expenses, increase profitability, and sustainably grow the value of the firm. They look at the best growth path for the company, whether through acquisitions or organic expansion, and often provide internal consulting services to improve performance.
Equip yourself for the world's most competitive industry
Designed with input from Fortune 1000 CFOs, leading academics, and a broad range of finance professionals, Hult’s Master of Finance (MFIN) program provides broad exposure to corporate finance topics and training to help you develop your data and financial analytics skills. It also helps you gain the communication and leadership skills needed for a career in finance.
Learn from experts in finance
Hult’s faculty draws from real-world practitioners. Study best practices with former finance executives and expert accounting professionals who have many years of combined experience in both business and academia. Professor Dalko, Hult’s Global Professor of Finance and Finance Discipline Lead, is one such example; she has taught at Harvard and served as Advisor to the Hungarian National Bank and government. Unlike at many other business schools, Hult’s professors remain close to the real business world, serving as consultants or directors to some of the world’s largest companies.
Apply your knowledge during Hult's Action Project
The capstone of Hult’s Master programs, the Action Project, puts your knowledge and skills to the test as you and your classmates become consultants for actual organizations working on real-world challenges. Investment banks, advisors, and finance professionals use pitch books to present strategies to optimize the value of the firm. As a part of your Action Project, you will work in teams with your mentors and compete against peers to create a pitch book for an experienced financial professional or company executive.

In this exciting elective, you will experience the fast pace of a trading room and learn by doing. Students will be provided with a USD1 million simulated trading account.
