An eye on the future
Finance research is governed by the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, where industry and faculty interact in seeking innovative solutions to pressing problems.
Technology may be something of a newcomer to the finance industry, but its disruptive impact has forever changed how business is done in this sector.
Whether you aspire to a management position in the finance department of your company, or seek to climb the ladder in the financial sector, you need an understanding of how quantitative methods, analytics and financial technology are rewriting the traditional financial disciplines. The master’s degree in Finance at the School of Business at Stevens teaches these methods and encourages a quantitative, analytical way of thinking about problems that will allow aspiring managers to stay ahead of trends in the industry and create value in high-visibility areas.
“Everyone who's in this industry can feel technology moving the ground under their feet. This program will help professionals understand and manage these unprecedented changes.”
Students in Stevens' M.S. in Finance program will gain a comprehensive foundation in financial and economic topics, as well as an understanding of common financial technologies and how to use them to exploit opportunity. Graduates will complete the program having been trained to apply quantitative thinking to the challenges of managing finance, and will develop specialties in areas of greatest interest to their career tracks, such as investment banking and valuation, or financial analytics and risk.
The Stevens Finance graduate degree program has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. Universities with this recognition incorporate at least 70 percent of the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), making them well positioned to sit for the CFA exams.
