Today’s technology-intensive finance industry is desperate for analysts who bring statistical and programming skills to banks, hedge funds and wealth management offices. 

“It's incredible to see the huge push in the finance industry toward the new technologies and programming techniques that I learned at Stevens.”

Unlike financial engineers, who use mathematical modeling and computer science skills to create algorithms and tools, financial analysts combine their programming skills with talents in data analysis and statistics to design innovative solutions to the finance problems of the future. They also use excellent business and communication skills to assess client needs and make recommendations to executive teams. 

The Stevens master’s in Financial Analytics teaches professionals to apply their physics, statistics or engineering skills to the lucrative finance industry. You’ll learn from faculty whose insights are changing how the industry is thinking about concepts like machine learning, data modeling and optimization in finance. You’ll take courses in one-of-a-kind financial labs, home to the data analysis and visualization tools used on Wall Street. Most importantly, our location on the Hudson River ensures you’ll have regular interaction with industry recruiters in New York City, just 10 minutes away by train or ferry.
