Abstract

This paper presents and analyzes a survey taken of core (required) finance courses in the curricula of the highest-reputation MBA programs in the school year 2004-2005. Five of the nineteen schools responding have increased hours spent in the finance core substantially, compared to results of our earlier survey in 2001. We received mixed signals on the trends or tendencies that we were able to ascertain from our previous survey in 2001. We consolidate item-by-item response from these schools in the Key Summary Table in the hope to present a true and holistic picture of core finance course teaching in top MBA programs.
