Master of Science in Computational Finance
The MS in Computational Finance curriculum offers integration of finance, mathematics, and computing. The required mathematics courses have substantial financial content and the experiential computational finance course that students take during the summer make use of skills learned in the mathematics, analytics and finance courses taken up to that point.
The program features a unique summer project that includes analysis of real-world data in a business case provided by Saunders corporate partners. This provides students with challenging tasks that help to develops computational skills and prepares students for employment. The program ends with a required non-credit comprehensive exam based on the courses completed by the student.
The multidisciplinary nature of the program and the involvement of as many as four RIT colleges are its strengths. This is a 17-month, full-time program beginning exclusively in the fall. Part-time options are not currently available.
