Leaders for the new financial reality.

The Johns Hopkins MS in Finance equips you with advanced quantitative skills and familiarizes you with concepts that major financial businesses use to confront and construct their strategies.

It’s a rigorous program geared to students seeking careers in financial analysis, financial management, and financial regulation.

Here, experienced professionals offer expert insight into emerging topics and trends such as global trade dynamics, advanced hedge fund strategies, and investor behavior, giving you the foundation and confidence to deliver superior returns while applying balanced asset management and risk awareness principles. You’ll use cutting-edge technology, financial methodologies, and financial modeling to analyze complex problems in a global context.

The program will also equip you with the skills to:

  • Identify, evaluate, and implement capital budgeting processes to maximize shareholder value.
  • Expertly assess financial risk and proficiency, especially when future payoffs are uncertain.
  • Understand and implement asset allocation strategies and risk management procedures.
  • Leverage cutting-edge finance techniques and the resources that support them.

As the world of finance confronts more complex challenges, our graduates are ready to respond and lead.

Bigger than the bottom line.

While our students receive a firm grounding in the essentials of finance, the curriculum also emphasizes the need for creativity, critical thinking, and ethical behavior. You’ll explore concepts such as responsible investing, ethical leadership, and the role of finance in improving people’s lives.

It’s a program designed for a new generation of leaders who are committed to the idea that the financial and holistic health of businesses and communities is critical to long-term, sustainable growth and prosperity.
