Technology is a relative latecomer to the financial industry, but its disruptive impact is every bit as pronounced. That’s why Stevens is a great place to study finance — our curriculum not only focuses on the basics, from microeconomics to corporate finance, but also on the role technology has played in turning this industry on its head. We also leverage strong connections at Fortune 500 companies in Manhattan and North Jersey to bring a practical perspective to finance theory — and to offer students access to internships and jobs at these top employers.
“Most, if not all, schools will give you the basic tradition of business, but Stevens integrates technology in a much better, faster and more efficient way. And having that technological background, especially today, really helps you stand out. You have to actually think about the end goals and how you use technology to get there. Stevens trains you to think that way.”
