The Master of Financial Economics Program at the University of Toronto is a collaborative program of the Department of Economics and the Rotman School of Management. The Program is designed to equip students with the tools and skills required for successful careers in the financial sector. Its key objective is to provide a broad understanding of Financial Theory and the Economics framework upon which that theory is based, both in the classroom and through actual work experience within firms in the financial sector. The Program is aimed primarily at students who have recently completed undergraduate degrees in Economics. The Program welcomes applications from these students and from other students who have recently completed four-year B.A., B.Sc., B.Com, or M.A. degrees, provided such students have fulfilled requisite courses in Economics, Mathematics and Statistics. The Program will provide its graduates with the necessary analytical and quantitative skills to meet the challenges faced in a rapidly changing marketplace. It provides a combination of practical and classroom experience that will allow students to enter the workplace and provide an immediate contribution.
