Master’s in Banking & Financial Management

In an era of heightened scrutiny, expansive expectations, and lingering economic uncertainty, the need for sound financial management amongst both corporations and the private sector is presumably at an all-time high. Managerial finance, at its core, deals not specifically with the accounting and calculation of a company’s financial data, but rather the analysis and expectation of how that information affects the firm or entity both in the present and moving forward.

Career Opportunities with this Degree

The typical master’s degree in banking and financial management will be of the Master of Science variety. Employment and job growth for the managerial finance industry is expected to grow in accordance with the average for all occupations, with jobs increasing by about 8 percent over the next decade. Prospective job candidates will face heavy competition for openings; although those with master’s degrees will be in prime position for hiring.
