Finance & Risk Management

Department Website

The MS in Finance & Risk Management at the University of Colorado Denver is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Located in the heart of downtown Denver, the Business School at the University of Colorado Denver bridges the gap between the classroom and real world experience. Our MS in Finance & Risk Management program provides students with the skills to invest savings and wealth in securities such as stocks, bonds, commodities, money market funds, and derivatives. Finance also includes the study of the financial services industry including commercial and mortgage banking, insurance companies, mutual funds, stock exchanges, investment banking, and hedge funds. These entities provide multiple markets for businesses and investors to trade resources. Businesses face increasing consolidations and restructurings, and investment opportunities and trading platforms change rapidly. Students can choose to specialize in one of these five areas: Economics*, Finance, Commodities, Financial Analysis and Management, or Risk Management and Insurance.
