Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a recognized university or college and should have completed Common Body of Knowledge courses in economics, calculus and statistics. Admission is competitive and the number of candidates accepted each year is limited.
The College offers thesis and non-thesis options for the degree. The thesis option requires 26 hours of coursework with four hours of thesis credit. The non-thesis option requires 30 hours of coursework.
Students should have completed coursework in the Common Body of Knowledge before enrolling in the MS Finance program.
Students may apply for student loans through the Financial Aid office at http://www.auburn.edu/student_info/student_affairs/finaid/index.html (offsite link). The Department of Finance has a very limited number of graduate research assistantships which provide a partial tuition waiver and a monthly stipend.
