What is financial analysis?

Financial analysis is the examination of financial information, such as cash flows and profitability. This allows organizations to gain insights into their performance and reach informed business decisions.

But financial analysis is so much more. It is also about working with people and helping businesses and nonprofits reach their full potential. To truly stand out in the field, you need deeper learning than what you can find in financial analysis books. Companies and organizations are looking to hire financial analysts who can leverage financial concepts while also adhering to high ethical standards. At Gordon, we integrate faith and financials to equip graduate students with the tools and values they need to reimagine financial analysis in ways that make a positive human impact. Our online graduate program curriculum delves into the theories, research and practical models of leadership in organizations, with an emphasis on business leadership in relation to Christianity and ethical decision-making. All of our courses are hands-on, very practical, and integrate as many case studies as possible.

"I wanted to do MSFA because it was designed for students coming out of liberal arts schools and it would allow me to continue building my network within the finance community. It provided tremendous value for the price and the curriculum was modeled after the CFA, which I knew would be important to my career and future employers."
