Value of the Stevens network
Joyce Pegler got multiple internship offers, and chose PwC after reaching out to Stevens alumni.
Quantitative Finance is about more than analyzing stock portfolios; it is at the heart of all modern financial strategies and operations.
The discipline spans the management of pension funds and insurance companies to the control of operational risks for manufacturing and consumer products companies and how to model the behavior of financial markets. The QF bachelor's program at Stevens emphasizes business, math, finance and computer science, preparing you to understand and seize new opportunities across industry categories. You’ll become an expert at using the unique tools of the trade in our high-tech financial systems lab, and will get Bloomberg certification as a freshman. And demand from industry is insatiable — since its inception, 100 percent of the program’s graduates have secured high-paying jobs on Wall Street and beyond.
Additionally, the Stevens QF program has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Affiliation 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.
Students who graduate from the Quantitative Finance program are able to manage financial assets and risk for firms on Wall Street and beyond, ranging from risk management, to investment banking, to financial modeling.
Very few universities offer Quantitative Finance programs at the undergraduate level, creating a unique avenue for students interested in this challenging, exciting field of study. The Quantitative Finance program at Stevens also benefits from the unique financial analytics labs that are part of the university's prestigious Hanlon Financial Systems Center, where students get Bloomberg certification in the first semester of their freshman year. In addition to the incredible placement rate enjoyed by Quantitative Finance graduates, students can take part in the Student Managed Investment Fund. Students overseeing the fund have nearly half a million dollars under management and put classroom concepts into practice as they aim to improve the fund's performance.
