Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business is offering a new executive master’s degree in corporate finance that can be completed in just one year.

The three-semester program starts in January and is designed for finance executives seeking to expand or update their knowledge. Applications for the 2010 program are due Nov. 13.

“In today’s uncertain and changing economic environment, many professionals want to shorten the time it takes to complete their studies in order to apply their knowledge and skills more rapidly in today’s global financial world,”  Jane Mutchler, Robinson associate dean for academic planning and programs, said in a news release.

Classes will meet every Monday evening, every other Wednesday evening and three Saturday mornings per semester at Georgia State’s Buckhead Center, 200 Tower Place.

Applicants should have a four-year undergraduate degree, four or more years of full-time work experience and should have demonstrated potential for managerial advancement.
