Master of Finance recognized as ideal preparation for leading risk management credential

"The Quinlan MSF curriculum maintains strong relevancy in today’s changing financial markets, and students pursuing this degree should find themselves well prepared for the rigors of the FRM certification program," said Dr. Chris Donohue of GARP.

Quinlan's Master of Science in Finance is now one of only 35 graduate finance programs officially designated as ideal preparation for the Financial Risk Manager (FRM) designation, which is the leading professional credential in the fast-growing profession of risk management.

The designation is administered by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP).

Leading credential in risk management

FRMs are employed at nearly every financial services institution, government regulator, and consulting firm around the world. The FRM designation signals to employers that a potential employee has the knowledge and ability to anticipate, respond, and adapt to critical issues in risk management.

Quinlan formed an academic partnership with GARP to help prepare our students to advance in their careers through both rigorous academic instruction and professional certification.

"GARP is pleased to welcome Loyola University Chicago to the GARP Partnership for Risk Education," said Dr. Chris Donohue, managing director and head of research and educational programs for GARP.  "The Masters of Finance program offered by the Quinlan School of Business provides its students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their modeling and analytic skills."

He continues, "Given the strong stewardship of the program’s Financial Advisory Board, the Quinlan MSF curriculum maintains strong relevancy in today’s changing financial markets, and students pursuing this degree should find themselves well prepared for the rigors of the FRM certification program and ready to embark on a career in the global risk management profession."
