MS (Finance) / MBA (Finance) + MS (Global Finance)
Dual-Track Finance Specialization Program at XIMB, Xavier University - Bhubaneswar
In Collaboration with Fordham University Business School, New York, USA
This is proposed to be a dual-track Finance program. The first year, which would be housed in XIMB (Xavier Institute of Management – Bhubaneswar), the School of Business Management of the Xavier University - Bhubaneswar (XUB) located at the Bhubaneswar City Campus of XUB, would be common for both the tracks and would cover core and advanced courses from Accounting & Finance areas as well as core courses from other areas. At the end of the first year, those who are promoted to the second year (which requires satisfying the pre-specified promotion requirements) and also have an average/cumulative QPI (grade) of 5.5 in the four Fordham Foundation Transfer Courses Taught at XIMB (shown under Course Details), would be given the option to choose one of the two tracks. The Standard Track, which would be open to all promoted students, would entail the students continuing their second year at XIMB, the successful completion of which would fetch them an MS (Finance) from XUB. The Fast Track would entail the students going to GBA (Graduate School of Business Administration) at Fordham University, New York, USA, taking an intensive 18 credits there in July-August, then returning to India, and submitting a PEER (Practical Experience Executive Report) to XIMB after seven to eight months’ of work experience; the successful completion of this track would fetch the student an MSGF (MS in Global Finance) from Fordham University and MBA (Finance) from XUB.
