Quantitative Finance Bachelor's Degree
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, virtually 100 percent of the program’s graduates have secured high-paying jobs on Wall Street and beyond within six months of commencement.
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.
Lessons in the Quantitative Finance major are fused with practical experience and access to leading financial organizations in nearby New York. Students will be exposed to a strong quantitative component, including two years of calculus and a supplementary year of advanced financial mathematics.
