The certificate of post-MSF studies is designed to allow graduates of AACSB-accredited MSF programs to develop expertise in a specified area of concentration beyond the MSF. The curriculum consists of a custom-designed selection of six graduate courses plus prerequisites. After a review of the student’s background and interests, the MSF director will designate the courses required. Certificates are awarded in the following areas of specialization: accounting, business valuation, economics, e-commerce/information systems, entrepreneurship, international business, management, and marketing. Credits earned for the certificate may be applied to other graduate degrees.
Upon successful completion of program requirements, students will have posted to their transcript the following entry: Certificate of Post-MSF Studies in (insert discipline) and will be issued a certificate listing the discipline studied.
The program is open only to graduates of MSF programs accredited by the AACSB. Application requires submission of completed application, current résumé, graduate transcripts, and GMAT scores. Seattle University MSF graduates usually will be considered automatically eligible for the program. For non-Seattle University graduates, GMAT scores, academic performance and work experience must meet or exceed the standard for entry to the master of science in finance program.
