Masters in Finance at Hult

Learn both the language of business and the tactical financial skills needed to make an impact in corporate finance and international accounting with a Masters in Finance. With our Masters in Finance program, you will learn to make smart financial management decisions that maximize company value, limit risk, and optimize financial performance.

As a STEM qualification, this degree makes you eligible for a three-year working visa (OPT) in the U.S. after graduation. Non-U.S. residents who receive a Masters in Finance currently qualify for up to three years OPT (Optional Practical Training) in the U.S. after their studies.

Our practical curriculum has been designed in collaboration with leading CFOs to equip you with both the technical and leadership skills to thrive in an international corporate environment. You’ll study ways to fund investments, free up capital, and decrease costs in a variety of contexts and, by understanding the nuts and bolts of the business and what drives the numbers, learn how to advise on which activities drive profitable growth.

Being a successful member of a finance team in a multinational corporation requires more than a mastery of numbers. You need to go beyond business to understand the opportunity and the risk technology presents to the sector and to society. You need to be able to work in cross-cultural teams and lead in unstable global markets.


At Hult, you'll go beyond business to learn about the world, the future, and yourself through a practical approach that is embedded in the student experience and the curriculum.
