WPU’s business school launches Master of Science in finance

William Paterson University‘s Cotsako’s College of Business announced Tuesday it is launching a new Master of Science in finance and financial services in January 2020.

The Wayne-based higher education institution said the twin track program was developed in response to the high demand for well-trained senior finance professionals. Students can obtain certificates in either the Chartered Finance Analyst or Certified Financial Planner designations.

“This new master of science in finance and financial services is exceptional because it will appeal to both professionals already in the field who are looking to advance their careers as well as undergraduate students interested in this rapidly growing field,” Susan Godar, interim dean of the Cotsakos College of Business, said.

The 30-credit program can be completed in 15 months or one calendar year, WPU said. Graduates will leave with relevant skills and the ability to use technologies and processes for improved financial performances.

Courses are offered at night in online, hybrid or face-to-face formats. Applications for the spring and fall of 2020 are currently open.
