M.Sc. in Finance
Edwards School of Business
University of Saskatchewan
25 Campus Drive
Saskatoon SK CAN   S7N 5A7

The program provided me with the analytical tools and knowledge base that is crucial in all areas of applied finance. I would recommend the M.Sc. program to students who are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. or to those students who are looking to further their undergraduate education and obtain a more advanced skill set than an undergraduate or MBA degree can offer.

The Master of Science in Finance Program (M.Sc.) is a thesis based program that provides students with a theoretical background in contemporary finance issues and a strong foundation in empirical methods. The first year of the two-year curriculum is devoted to course work while the second year focus is on a thesis.

Due to the research intensive nature of the program and individual faculty supervision at the thesis stage, applicants are carefully adjudicated and enrolment is limited. Only a handful of universities across North American offer programs that have a similar research focus at the Master’s level. The degree can be used as a platform for students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. and it equips students with a competitive advantage in jobs that have a significant research component.


Standard Graduate Studies Application plus the following:

  • A statement indicating why you wish to pursue an M.Sc. in Finance
  • GMAT or GRE 

Demonstrated English proficiency:

  • TOEFL (computer) - 213; (internet) - 80, with a minimum score of 20 in each category
  • IELTS - 6.5, with a minimum of 6.5 in each category
