Creighton University Finance Program Ranked in Top 20 in Nation

The U.S. News & World Report 2012 Department of Finance ranked Creighton University’s college of business finance program 19th in the nation.

Anthony Hendrickson, Dean to the College of Business, says the program is up two points from last year.  He says Creighton boasts more Certified Financial Analyst charter holders on its faculty than any other institution in the world. 

Hendrickson says he thinks the visibility of the master’s in security analysis has attracted a lot of attention.

According to Hendrickson, the Master's program is designed to prepare students for each of the three levels of the chartered financial analyst institute examination.  He says the CFA exam is an extremely rigorous exam.  Hendrickson says the international pass rate is about 30% while the pass rate for Creighton students is about 87%.

Hendrickson says Creighton tied this year with the Fisher School of Business at Ohio State University, the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Yale School of Management.
