Got questions? We've got answers.

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
