Part-time Option

The part-time option allows you to complete the MFE program over two years instead of one. This is a great choice if you'd like to continue working while pursuing your MFE degree. Plus, you can apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom immediately at work!

Please note that we cannot issue an F-1 visa for part-time students. International students who choose the part-time option may work with their employers to get an L1 or H1B visa.  International students may elect to take courses remotely from the country in which they are based.

"The part-time MFE program offers the opportunity to work and attend classes simultaneously, granting us the ability to graduate with both valuable industry experience and the prestigious MFE degree. I was able to learn skills in the MFE program and immediately apply them directly in my job - the part-time MFE provides instantaneous value."
