FAQs: MBA in Finance


What does an MBA in Finance do?

An MBA in Finance can help you learn vital finance skills while also teaching you about the different ways they can be applied in a business setting. If you complete an MBA in Finance program, you'll most likely have a range of skills that you can leverage as you prepare to pursue a career in this field, as well as a graduate-level credential to add to your resume.


How long does it take to earn an MBA in Finance?

Typically, an MBA takes a bit more than two years to complete. At DeVry, you can earn your MBA with a Finance Specialization in an estimated 2 years and 8 months, or even more quickly with qualifying transfer credits3.


Is an MBA in Finance worth it?

We think an MBA in Finance can absolutely be worth it if you're interested in gaining both business and finance skills through a single degree program. As an MBA program, the MBA with a Specialization in Finance at DeVry can help you build up your business skills, potentially helping you prepare to pursue both business and finance career paths. Our MBA is also a graduate-level degree, which may help you to stand out in applications for certain entry-level or intermediate-level positions, depending on its requirements.


MBA in Finance vs. Master's in Finance

An MBA in Finance and a Master's in Finance are both graduate-level degrees with a finance focus. The primary difference between the two is found in the coursework for each degree. An MBA in Finance is a business degree first, meaning that you'll take a variety of business classes in addition to any finance classes that are part of a specialization. A Master's in Finance focuses more on only finance courses, and specifically lists finance on your degree. However, you will have the option to note that your MBA had a finance specialization on your resume once you begin applying for jobs. Once you leave school, the differences between the two degrees may become less significant, in some cases, as both can give you the opportunity to learn skills that may allow you to consider some of the same job titles.
