Though I am still trying to understand things through the prism of the US’ system as far as the grading is concerned, I would say that U.V.A’s Master’s program in finance seems to be very competitive and rigorous. The course menu’s layout is what keeps me charged and show up for school regardless the drastic weather. The lectures’ environment is interactive between students and professors creating an ambient learning atmosphere.
