The quantitative and systems-intensive perspective of the master's program prepares students 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. The 30-credit degree includes six required courses that emphasize quantitative finance, financial services analytics, financial risk and regulation, and financial systems. As part of the degree, students are encouraged to take an integrated four-course certificate that allows for additional expertise in a particular discipline of their choosing.
