Expand your capabilities and your competitive edge as a business leader with a strategic integration of highly sought-after skills.

MBAs who have a deep knowledge of finance are in enormous demand in today’s volatile global marketplace. If you have your eye on the upper rungs of the corporate ladder or dream of launching an enterprise of your own, you’ll need a strategic package of rigorous skills and knowledge. Our MBA/M.S. in Finance dual degree master’s program delivers in-depth knowledge of finance with a broad foundation in global business theory and practice.

What makes this program so powerful is that you build the same advanced level of expertise in global finance and business management that you would by earning the two degrees individually. Clark University’s transdisciplinary and individualized curricula integrates key insights from multiple fields, giving you the foundation to tackle the most intractable business challenges. When you graduate, you will be equipped to take on the most demanding, high profile leadership roles with knowledge, skill, and confidence.

Choose a Fintech concentration

As part of the finance portion of the dual MBA/MSF, students may choose a concentration in Financial Technology and prepare to contribute to development and operation of new technologies and Fintech infrastructure.

The Fintech concentration equips students with business analytics big data programming skills such as data science, financial econometrics, database management, data visualization, and predictive modeling.

International Students

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees are in tremendous demand across most major industries in the United States. If you graduate with a STEM-designated degree, such as the Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Finance, you may be eligible to remain in this country for up to 36 months on Optional Practical Training (OPT).
