The finance degree that's right for you will depend on your current education and career goals. A four-year finance degree covers the fundamentals of business and financial markets. These degrees are required for entry-level finance positions, such as financial analyst, budget analyst, and investment banker. The Master of Business Administration with a finance focus or the master's of science in finance can provide a higher level of business training and a deeper look at corporate finance. Finance is a competitive industry, and a master's degree can significantly boost your career opportunities. If you are interested in roles such as financial policy specialist or college finance professor, the PhD might be a good option for you.
