Candidates who have recently graduated from university or college, as well as individuals with up to three years of work experience who want to launch a career in the finance function of multinational companies.
What you’ll learn
Smart financial management decisions maximize shareholder and company value and limit risk. The role of the CFO and the company’s finance team is to optimize financial performance. They do this by looking for ways to fund investments, free up capital, and decrease costs. By understanding the nuts and bolts of the business and what drives the numbers, they also advise on which activities drive profitable growth. The Master of Finance degree is designed to give students this breadth of insight.
At Hult’s Boston campus, you’ll be living among some of the brightest minds in the fields of accounting, investment management, and consulting with companies like PwC, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Deloitte, Fidelity, State Street Bank, Boston Consulting Group, and Bain Capital all calling Boston home. Hult also brings business practitioners into the classroom. For example, Hult accounting professor Tom Porter has over 30 years of professional accounting experience, while Hult professor Jon Bentley served as a Partner at PwC.
Your Master of Finance program begins with a three-week Immersion.
Immersion is the first course in all our Master degree programs and lays the foundations for a successful year. It is a combination of learning academic fundamentals, teamwork, and forging a sense of community among classmates.You will also have the opportunity to orientate yourself to life at Hult and your new home city.
The Immersion course prepares you to develop into well-rounded business professionals over the duration of your program and provides the knowledge and skills required to apply a competency-based approach to leadership development.
You'll end the course with a capstone simulation which introduces you to complex, integrated high-level business problems in a true-to-life team format. You'll develop and execute a corporate growth strategy, managing all functional areas of a business.
For your first three modules, your core courses will focus on the fundamentals of finance—taught from a global perspective. You will then tailor your final two modules to your individual interests and career goals with electives that you can choose to take at any of our six global campuses.

You can opt to build upon the knowledge you have already acquired during your core courses, or you can choose to pursue greater understanding in an area of personal interest.

Change never stops, so your business learning shouldn’t either. We empower you to stay up-to-date with emerging trends by taking a complementary elective each year for the rest of your life.
One elective a year, on us.
Most careers span decades and critical skills can change as you progress in seniority. The rapid pace of change also means future critical business knowledge might have simply been impossible to learn during your program. Before 2004 there was no Facebook or YouTube; neither the iPhone nor Airbnb existed prior to 2007, and yet understanding the impact of these innovations is critical for business success today. At Hult, you can refresh a skillset or get up to speed on a new business trend by enrolling in one elective a year at any of our global campuses. There’s a small registration fee, but the course is otherwise free of charge.
Executive education options for life.
Instead of studying an elective, every year Hult alumni can enrol in a range of leadership Summer Executive Education Programs at our historic Ashridge Estate campus in Berkhamsted, U.K. Courses feature a range of leadership and development programs and are taught by experts with practical, theoretical, and commercial experience. There’s a small registration fee, but courses otherwise cost over $10,000 so the savings over time for Hult alumni are significant.
