The Master in Finance (MiF) is the second most popular graduate business degree after the MBA, accounting for nearly a quarter of all business school applications.
While many of the best masters in finance programs can be found at European business schools—with top programs at HEC Paris, ESCP Business School, and Essec Business School—MiF programs are increasingly found in Asia and the United States.
Like other business school degrees, a Master in Finance doesn’t come cheap. European programs like the Master of International Finance at HEC Paris come in at around $35k in tuition, while US MiF programs like that at MIT Sloan cost in excess of $87k.
So, is a Master’s in Finance degree worth it?
