Access to Faculty and Exposure to Companies
One of the best things about getting a master's degree in finance at Weatherhead is the level of interaction with faculty and fellow students. Small class sizes, one-on-one mentoring, and direct exposure to top employers define the Weatherhead student experience. Take it from Scott Fine, Professor of Banking and Finance.
"Our MS-Finance is a high-touch program in which students enjoy deep access to faculty and broad exposure to companies throughout their time at Weatherhead. The relatively small size of the program means my colleagues and I can work closely with students to identify internship opportunities in students' areas of interest and set up visits with practitioners in an array of fields. We take care to ground our teaching in applications; for example, in my capstone course in corporate finance, students work on a real, specific situation drawn from corporate M&A, leveraged buyouts, public equities and equity research, or corporate financial policies and transactions."
What Is it Like to Be a Weatherhead Student?
At Weatherhead, small class sizes mean one-on-one interaction with academic pioneers and industry leaders. Our faculty excel in teaching as well as research, and the opportunity to share their insights and excitement in the most up-to-date and creative areas of management studies is one that Weatherhead students prize. The diversity of our student body, too, enriches the graduate experience with points of view from countries and cultures around the world. Because students tend to learn from one another as much as from teachers, teamwork is a prominent feature of many classes; Weatherhead students form friendships within and outside of the classroom.
