Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business plans to introduce an executive master's degree program with a specialization in financial statement analysis and securities assessment, aimed at working professionals.

The college, part of the City University of New York system, intends to provide students who enroll in the program with a thorough knowledge of financial statements, internal operations and risk assessment.

The program will provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of financial markets and the valuation of assets by combining subject matter included in financial reporting and analysis, corporate finance, portfolio management, investments, risk management, statistics and economics.

Baruch's program is designed to prepare executives looking for career opportunities at commercial banks, insurance companies, hedge funds, brokerage firms and rating agencies. Individuals with a wide variety of academic backgrounds are eligible to apply.

The degree program is set to begin in September. Classes will be held on Saturdays, plus one evening per week, to accommodate the lives of working professionals. Information sessions for the EMS-FSA will be held at Baruch College on April 17, May 9 and June 10. For more information, call (646) 312-3100 or e-mail
