Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

If you have additional questions about the part-time Toronto MFin that are not covered below, contact the MFin office at and we will be pleased to assist you.

If I passed the CFA level I exam, can I be exempt from the GMAT requirement?

If you passed the CFA level one exam and completed a previous degree in North America, the GMAT requirement can be waived

Is work experience required for the MFin program?

A minimum of two years of full-time work experience is required for our part-time MFin program in Toronto.

I have completed multiple levels of CFA exams, is the MFin program still suitable for me?

Our MFin program does help the students to prepare for the CFA exams because we cover almost 100% of the CFA curriculum. However, our program is not a CFA prep program. Topics covered in the courses go beyond the CFA material. Students in the program will be exposed to in-depth analysis of financial theory and contemporary issues in the financial markets. Our students develop quantitative analysis skills that will help them in financial and investment analysis, learn how to apply theories and models in a real situation, and much more.

If I don't have an honours economics or business degree with a finance concentration, am I eligible to apply to the MFin program?

We do consider whether you passed any of the CFA exams and/or relevant industry working experience as a substitute for a business degree.

If I apply to both the MBA and MFin programs, is my application considered for both programs separately?

Your application will be considered separately for each program.

You may also partner the Lazaridis MFin program with our part-time, Toronto MBA and graduate with two professional degrees.

Where are classes held in Toronto?

All our classes for the part-time MFin program are held at Vantage Venues (formerly known as St. Andrews Club and Conference Centre) in downtown Toronto in the centre of the financial district.

Around the corner, in the Exchange Tower, are the Laurier Toronto offices.

When are classes held for the Toronto part-time program?

Our learning environment and schedule is designed for working professionals who want to accelerate their careers while still being able to balance their work and family life. You’ll be in class every other weekend on Fridays (7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (8:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.) over 18 months. No classes are held in July and August.
