To solve problems in finance in today's technology-driven markets, professionals must be able to apply mathematics, computational techniques, statistical analysis and economic theory. This certificate is designed to teach professionals how to use financial engineering techniques to solve problems in securities valuation, risk management, portfolio structuring and regulatory concerns, with an emphasis on stochastic modeling, optimization and simulation techniques.
Students who complete this certificate will be able to apply engineering solutions to the finance industry and to see the landscape from a more quantitative perspective, enabling them to uncover create solutions to emerging problems. Students are encouraged to consider the full master's in Financial Engineering upon completing the certificate.
The following courses are required for this certificate:
- FE 610 Stochastic Calculus for Financial Engineers
- FE 620 Pricing and Hedging
- FE 621 Computational Methods in Finance
- FE 630 Portfolio Theory and Applications
