MSF Career Management


The MSF Office of Career Strategy and Professional Engagement is well-positioned to immediately add value to your MSF degree. We serve only MSF students and alumni – making your success our priority. As one of the only dedicated career management offices for any specialized master’s program in finance in the country, our team of experienced career management and alumni engagement professionals are here to help you advance your career goals both now and in the future.

As a member of the Georgetown MSF community, you will study alongside students who bring a tremendous diversity of work experience, personal backgrounds, and academic credentials. Our student body encompasses the entire career lifespan – from those just starting their careers to those who are in senior management roles. This diversity enriches your networking connections and enables us to individualize our career and executive coaching to help you – regardless of where you are in your own career – to develop a personalized strategy for career success.

Starting at orientation, I encourage you to participate in the myriad of programs and events we offer, including our pre-program career clinics, MSFinNYC, summer clinics, networking events, and guest speaker series. These events will expand your understanding of today’s unique employment landscape, develop your professional networks, and better understand how to leverage your MSF degree in a variety of positions and industries.

I look forward to seeing you on the Hilltop soon.
