Where they're from
It used to be that a masters in finance was pursued by individuals who hold an undergraduate degree in finance. With the rise of Fintech, disruptions such as blockchain, and the proliferation of new business models such as the sharing economy, there has never been a better time to carve out a career in this dynamic field.
The diversity of educational backgrounds represented by the 2020-21 cohort shows the potential of a finance masters for anyone, not just finance undergrads. A third of these students majored in finance for their undergraduate studies while the rest hold degrees in the liberal arts, business/economics, accounting, and the natural sciences.
