“The MFin at Laurier has a very well-designed and balanced syllabus from very knowledgeable and patient professors, and combined academic backgrounds with practical applications. Personally, I benefited a lot from the good reputation of this program in the job-hunting process.”

The Master of Finance (MFin) degree has been named as the "must-have degree" by the Financial Times. The Lazaridis MFin degree is designed to help you pursue a career in finance in positions that demand both extensive finance knowledge and excellent quantitative research skills.
The Lazaridis MFin program equips you with extensive knowledge in finance and critical thinking skills. Graduating with an MFin degree will allow you to pursue a career in some of the most innovative sectors of Canadian finance, including:
We offer our MFin program in Waterloo for students looking for full-time studies, or for students who wish to participate in Canada’s largest business degree co-op program. We also offer our MFin program in downtown Toronto for working professionals looking to complete a degree outside of work hours and who are looking for a career boost.
Students in the Lazaridis School are uniquely positioned to manage the Laurier Graduate Student Investment Fund (LGSIF). The structure of LGSIF is designed to provide hands-on experience to graduate students in equity investment and portfolio management, using real money.
The Lazaridis MFin is a member of the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. You can prepare for all three levels of the CFA examinations while you work toward completing the MFin degree.
