Our graduate programs prepare students for employment in analytical and risk management fields, by offering Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in Business Analytics, Enterprise Risk Management, Marketing Intelligence, Risk & Financial Advisory, Risk Management and Risk Analytics. The Tobin College also offer M.S. programs in Accounting, Actuarial Science, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Finance, Global Management, and Taxation. In addition, the Tobin College offers six advanced certificate programs, as well as, three Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs: our FLEX MBA, STEM MBA and Accounting Analytics MBA. Our programs are offered at our main campus in Queens, our branch campuses in Manhattan and Staten Island and several of our programs are offered completely online.

In addition to our programs, both undergraduate and graduate students can participate in our experiential Executive-in-Residence Program (EIRP), which provides real consulting experience for clients such as KPMG, National Grid, Protiviti, and Standard & Poor's U.S. Equity Research Services.
