The quantitative finance major at IWU is a unique combination of finance theory and
application, mathematics and data science - all in a liberal arts setting.
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.
