Program Details

Nova Southeastern University offers a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. The Master’s program is designed to build on the already laid foundations of business and finance while introducing students to the advanced concepts of corporate finance, securities analysis, portfolio management, and financial institutions and markets.

Finance is the management of revenue and the delegation of wealth and profits amongst government institutions, company obligations, organizational subsidiaries, or individual accounts. The purpose of finance is how to best advise and allocate monetary funds and assets into profitable investments. The delicate balance of risk and certainty play into the factors deciding what avenues to fund in order to gain maximized profits. The well trained and intuitive financial planner will have a keen perception of the time value of money, and the appropriate risk taking skills to best suit the investing firm’s objectives. The areas of finance can be broken into several sectors: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.

Most Finance graduates enter their professional careers with positions in the financial arena of general businesses, investment banking firms, broker-dealer firms, management consulting firms, various departments of commercial banks, and other domestic and international financial institutions.

Earning an MBA with a focus in Finance will supplement the core advanced knowledge and understandings from a traditional MBA with the dynamic and evolving problem solving skills required to succeed as a leader in positions within the competitive financial industry. Many companies and firms acknowledge the value of human capital potential with highly educated employees, thus encouraging and working to pay, reimburse or supplement the tuition costs accrued.

A graduate student’s purpose of earning a master’s degree is to obtain higher positions in leadership career opportunities. Graduates who earn the MBA degree will be eligible for jobs that need the advanced education of core business concepts. Students of the MBA program will use theory and application of business and operations management principles when competing for promotions or completing critical tasks.
