At Indiana University Southeast, both the MBA and the MSSF are designed primarily for working professionals who seek a high-quality, part-time graduate business academic experience.


The Indiana University Southeast Master of Science in Strategic Finance (MSSF) is a graduate business program designed to advance the careers of financial professionals in the private sector and public accounting. The MSSF develops knowledge, skills, and abilities in cost management, financial management, business analysis and valuation, financial statement analysis, decision modeling and simulation, topics in fraud, and advanced corporate financial strategy. Additional elective courses focus on enhancing the financial professional’s abilities in specific areas, such as investment management, international financial management,venture growth management, project management, and information technology management.Professionals without an undergraduate accounting background may choose accounting elective coursework to qualify for the CPA designation.

Completing Both Graduate Business Degrees

The MBA and MSSF are designed as separate degree programs. Students and alumni interested in completing both degree plans should contact the Director of Graduate Business Programs for more information about the specific requirements to earn both degrees. Completion of both the 2012 MSSF and MBA programs (simultaneously or consecutively) requires a minimum of 54 graduate credit hours.

Tuition Rates

While other institutions have increased their tuition rates dramatically, IU Southeast understands the importance of keeping the cost of an IU education manageable. To that end, we’ve worked to keep tuition costs low and to increase the amount of financial aid available. Plus, residents of Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, Meade, Trimble and Shelby Counties in Kentucky pay Indiana in-state tuition rates for all programs.
