Investing is one of the more complex, competitive and rewarding areas in finance. Creighton's M.S. in Security Analysis & Portfolio Management (MSAPM) delivers advanced knowledge about investment assessment, security analysis and portfolio management, which is critical to those seeking top jobs in the field.
Creighton's MSAPM program is designed around all three levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) exam1 and is taught exclusively by faculty members with the CFA® designation. In a field where CFA® charterholders adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards, our intense program is an invaluable asset for those looking to either advance their careers or transition into the world of investments, security analysis or portfolio management. The program curriculum covers a significant portion of the topics of study for all three levels of the CFA® exam. Creighton University is one of only 137 universities worldwide that have earned the distinction of being a CFA® Program Partner.
Even though the MSAPM is built around the CFA® curriculum, there is no requirement that students pursue this designation concurrently or ever. The MSAPM is a high-quality, practitioner-oriented master's degree program in finance that provides the extensive knowledge required of savvy investment professionals.
