Graduate Programs in Finance

The Department of Finance and Commercial Law offers three graduate programs for anyone looking to improve their knowledge of financial institutions and services, as well as analysis, methods and techniques. These first-rate programs will advance your skills and accelerate your career, preparing you for leadership roles across the industry.

Beginning in fall 2023, the Department of Finance and Commercial Law will offer two new graduate certificates: a graduate certificate in finance (12 credit hours) and a graduate certificate in financial technology (15 credit hours).

These two certificates can be earned on their own or in conjunction with the Master of Science in Finance degree. Graduate certificates are a great way to enhance other degrees at WMU Haworth, too, such as the MBA and the M.S.A.
