With the vast amount of financial data, as well as new and more complex financial instruments, there is an ever-growing need for thoughtful professionals to evaluate such data to solve important financial issues such as valuation of instruments, portfolio management and optimization, pricing of derivatives, and risk management.

With a combination of quantitative skills and a strong liberal arts foundation, this cross-departmental program makes our graduates uniquely attractive to employers.
