MSF News & Events
The MSF Program is seeking University of Florida freshman and sophomores with strong GPAs and SAT scores to learn about the MSF Combined Degree Program. Early interest in the program is highly recommended. Sessions are typically held once a month and last about one hour. No RSVP required. It is a good idea to check this calendar the day before an MSF Information Session to ensure it has not been rescheduled.
As you wait for an upcoming Information Session date, please be attending the Finance Professional Speaker Series. Mrs. Herring is available at the front of the room before the presentations, and you can introduce yourself.
