Career development

After completing the MS-FIN, starting a lucrative career is certainly within reach. You’ll be qualified for many different roles in the financial industry, including corporate finance, risk management, management, financial planning, investment banking, consulting, or even real estate.

Prospective students considering a highly ranked W. P. Carey Master of Science in Finance (MS-FIN) from Arizona State University should know that it’s difficult to go from no work experience in the financial industry straight to investment banking solely with a degree. If you’d like to rebrand yourself as a future financial leader, the MS-FIN can help. 

Starting your career after graduation can be a daunting task. The good news is that the greater Phoenix area gained 86,000 new jobs in 2018, and grew 3.2% from 2018 to 2019. This is the second-highest percentage of growth of all metropolitan areas nationwide. 

We’re in it for life. No matter your graduation year, you are and will always be a part of the W. P. Carey family. As a graduate, you’re among a community of alumni that’s more than 100,000 strong. Here are ways to keep in touch, stay informed, get involved, and invest in your alma mater and its network of fellow business leaders.
