Student Experience

USF MS in Financial Analysis


In the MSFA program, classes meet three days per week in person at our USF downtown San Francisco campus.

Designed for recent graduates and students in the early stages of their careers, the full-time MSFA is a one-and-a-half-year program that includes a Research Project or Academic Immersion.

The 18-month program of study covers all the courses in the CFA ... MSFA has many good courses taught by excellent professors who gave us the big picture of how finance works in the U.S."
