Cutting-edge curriculum delivered by experts in the field
Offering coursework to fit the needs of the finance professional, MFin gives you an unparalleled breadth and depth of financial knowledge. The curriculum considers how technology is changing the industry, preparing you to tackle these challenges effectively today and in the future.
"Basic coding skills don’t cut it anymore, it’s the era of big data on Wall Street and Bay Street. Banks and financial institutions are looking for talent that has a grip on technology. The MFin program teaches you how to frame intelligent questions and cut through the noise."
- Laura Garzon (MFin ‘20), Associate, Prime Services Group, CIBC Capital Markets
Co-curricular workshops, led by FinHub and the TD Management Data and Analytics Lab, help you master the new technologies that are transforming the industry. Sessions on Python and R will develop your coding skills and your ability to manage large and complex datasets.
Accelerate your career
The MFin program provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to become a high-value decision maker. Thanks to the School’s reputation, its deep connections with the local business community, and the strength of its dedicated career services, Rotman can put you on the path toward a successful post-MFin career.

Meet the class
Each MFin class is a diverse group of professionals from all areas of finance - risk, portfolio management, corporate finance, equity research, accounting, sales & trading and so on. They are finance professionals in large banks and boutique firms. Students are selected for their motivation (64% of our latest class have passed the CFA I and/or II and/or III exams), professional and personal achievements (average of 5 years work experience) and potential for continuing success.
"The MFin program was a great experience and I’m happy with my time there. I met a lot of smart, creative peers and faculty, and more importantly, we debated both the theory and practice of finance. At the end of the day we all came out smarter, more experienced, and better prepared."
- Siyan Tan, MFin, CFA, Portfolio Manager, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan
