Classification and Duration
The Master of Financial Economics at the University of Toronto is a joint professional program between the Department of Economics and the Rotman School of Management. This 16-month pre-experience, collaborative graduate program consists of 12 one-term courses, a four-month summer internship between terms two and three, and is offered on a full-time basis with one admission date, in mid-August. The curriculum of the MFE program combines graduate-level economics courses with second year MBA-level finance courses. The MFE degree is conferred in early June of the second academic year upon successful completion of the program requirements.
The Program is designed to equip students with the tools and skills required for successful careers in the financial sector. Its key objective is to provide a broad understanding of financial theory and the economics framework upon which that theory is based, both in the classroom and through actual work experience within firms in the financial sector. The Program is aimed primarily at students who have recently completed undergraduate degrees in economics. The program welcome applications from these students and those from related disciplines who have recently completed four-year B.A., B.Sc., B.Com degrees, provided such students have fulfilled requisite courses in economics, mathematics and statistics. Prospective applicants are advised that the course of study undertaken by students enrolled in the Program requires high-level quantitative and analytical skills.
