Executives in Residence

We believe the ability to make connections between what you learn in class and what you can expect to encounter in real-world situations is key to the overall value of your MSF degree.

For that reason, we launched the Executives in Residence program in 2016. Today, students have access to several executives in residence who focus on helping students develop key skills and competencies in the areas of consulting, investing, and fintech. Our executives in residence are available to advise students and also are responsible for leading our MSF Summer Clinics projects. They bring tremendous experience and an executive perspective to their work with the MSF Program and are a vital link between the curriculum and business world.

Career Bootcamp

This six-week intensive career program provides you with an overview of career options most readily available with an MSF degree, in-depth information about our internship policy, information on the investment banking and consulting summer 2021 search timelines, and time to develop both the materials (resume, cover letter, etc.) and the skills (behavior and technical interviewing) necessary for success.

You will work with faculty to accelerate your readiness for career-making decisions and learn to leverage your MSF degree almost immediately. You also will discover recruitment pipelines and learn how to avoid roadblocks in your job search.

If you are exploring a new position or internship early in the program, you can take advantage of our 6-week Career Bootcamp this summer. The primary audience for this program includes those just finishing an undergraduate degree who will search for a summer 2021 internship. The secondary audience includes students with less than one to three years of work experience or anyone who is currently unemployed and will be launching an immediate job search.
