The first term for enrollment in the Financial Economics, M.S. is fall 2021.
The Master of Science in Financial Economics (MSFE) degree provides advanced training in economics and finance to students interested in careers and further graduate study involving quantitative analysis in various areas of financial economics. Graduate students will acquire the skills for employment in the financial services sector in positions requiring advanced analytical skills and in-depth familiarity with the structure and functioning of financial markets and institutions. The MSFE prepares graduates for research positions and for doctoral study in financial economics. The MSFE program integrates subject areas traditionally taught and trained in the Wisconsin School of Business Finance Department and the College of Letters & Science Economics Department. The partnership between these departments ensures that students gain a rigorous understanding of theoretical finance and the economic framework upon which that theory is based.
