The Fast Track in Finance (FTF) program prepares you to succeed in careers requiring analytical thinking and financial acumen.
It's most beneficial to students considering careers in business development, consulting and strategy, corporate finance, impact investing, investment banking, investment management, private equity, venture capital, and tech.
Depending on your background and performance on assessments designed by Ross, you will progress through relevant courses quickly. The expedited schedule prepares you to succeed in landing internships that require analytical skills. And by waiving some core courses, you'll have additional opportunities to customize your curriculum.
This program offers the best of both worlds: you begin finance elective courses as soon as you start at Ross, while still taking full advantage of the signature aspects of our general management core curriculum.
To participate in the Fast Track in Finance program, you need to complete the FTF summer online program. You'll also need to successfully waive the core financial accounting course (ACC 502).
Students who qualify for the FTF program take two required courses, Valuation (FIN 615) in Fall A, and , Corporate Financial Policy (FIN 621) in Fall B of the first year.
To qualify for the FTF program, you need to demonstrate a good understanding of introductory financial concepts and applications through assessments in the FTF summer online program. The summer online program is designed to be accessible to learners who want to get exposure to more advanced analytical skills sooner in the program, without necessarily having any background in finance. Acceptance in the FTF program means that you have waived the core financial management course (FIN 503).
