Congratulations and welcome to the Department of Economics and
Finance at the Peter J. Tobin College of Business, St. John’s
University. You will be joining a select group of graduate students
who are highly motivated and are prepared to work hard to excel in
their professional advancement.
Our faculty of nationally recognized scholars and business
leaders has expertise to provide you with an in-depth understanding
of the current financial issues as well as hands on problem solving
strategies. Many Tobin College of Business graduates have taken
leadership positions in major financial institutions. Those
successful alumni are located throughout the world and provide a
readily available network for future Finance graduates. In
addition, as you may know, international study in Rome, London, and
Paris is another exceptional opportunity to prepare you to help
companies compete and grow globally.
We are among the elite programs in the nation that have a
Information Lab. This facility greatly benefits our students in
their research and helps them solve real-world business problems in
real-time using the same sophisticated technology that is in place
at Wall Street firms. Students in the Asset
Management class manage a live portfolio of approximately one
million dollars. Our students also participate in the New York
Society of Security Analysts equity research competition every
year. The Master in Science degree in Investment Management is
designed to provide students with expertise to make effective
financial analysis and investment decisions.
I hope you will take advantage of this unique environment with
renowned faculty, state-of-the-art facility, and global focus.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My
colleagues and I at Tobin College of Business look forward to
seeing you soon.
