MBA-Finance Track

The MBA-Finance is a specialized track within the MBA program and targets MBA students whose career choices require more extensive finance training and preparation than the traditional MBA. Students completing the track receive an MBA from Quinnipiac University. A select set of courses, taken as a group, provide the body of knowledge necessary to sit for Level 1 of the Chartered Financial Analyst® exam. Not all students in the MBA-Finance track choose this elective path. The first 28 credits of the track are the same as the MBA program. Students then take specialized concentration courses and finance electives to complete the 46 credits required for the MBA.

A student interested in the MBA-Finance track must designate this track to their adviser prior to completing all of the Foundations for Effective Management core courses.
