Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a recognized university or college and should have completed the 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 a non-thesis option for the degree. The non-thesis option requires 30 hours of coursework. The non-thesis option also has a comprehensive final exam.
Students may apply for student loans through the Financial Aid office. The Department of Finance has a very limited number of graduate research assistantships which provide a partial tuition waiver and a monthly stipend (after first semester and if funds are available).
