“The MSFE program at the Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business is an outstanding program, and the faculty are the most helpful you will find. It's perfect for students who are looking for a high quality, affordable, and flexible degree. I was able to work full-time while pursuing my degree, and it prepared me well for my goals of taking and passing the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams and pursuing a career in wealth management.”

“I graduated from WT with my undergraduate degree in 2012. I took a year off from school, since I had just accepted a position in my career field. I knew I was coming back, though. When it came to choosing where I'd attend, there was no doubt in my mind that WT would be the right place. The professors care here -- I think that sets WT apart from so many other universities. The MSFE program is more than a graduate degree. It's an expectation: I've now set an expectation for myself. Employers would ask me what kind of program this is, each of them, when they see my credentials on my resume -- and having the honor to explain this program is one of the best feelings.

The program involves a more research-based approach. At the end, you're given a comprehensive exam over everything you've touched in your studies. That comprehensive exam was one of the most challenging, yet mind-opening experiences of my life. The critical thinking level needed to pass that exam really broadened my analytical skills. I'm no longer task-oriented at work. I'm resolution-oriented. Why do we need this tax return, and what else will we need upon reviewing these financials? Anyone can complete a task -- it takes a strong employee to dig deeper into the needs of the task to find a faster, more efficient way to complete work.

Our MSFE program has moved up in the rankings every year, for obvious reasons! It's not just any graduate degree -- because WT isn't any university. It's a family.”
