The Master of Science in Financial Economics requires four semesters of full-time study (fall and spring) at Columbia Business School.
Students complete a minimum of 16 full graduate-level courses including a research seminar, in which they conduct a research project on an industry-focused research question. Students are also required to complete a summer internship for at least six weeks, which involves working as an intern in a company or doing research assistance work for a faculty member. The internship will preferably be tied closely to a student's research seminar project.
