Students can complete the MFIN program in 12 months starting the Fall semester provided they pass all core and elective courses, and maintain a cumulative average of at least 80 in all courses taken for graduate credit. Students coming from non-business backgrounds must also complete all their remedial courses. Failing to maintain a cumulative GPA of 80 upon completion of the courses for the program academic year or obtaining a grade less than 70 in any course will cause a delay in graduation until the program requirements are met. Students can also satisfy all the above requirements if registered part time over two calendar years.
