Quantitative Financial Economics
M.S. - Quantitative Financial Economics
The goal of the MSQFE Program is to offer a “finishing school” to two distinct streams of students. Students entering the program from engineering, physics, mathematics and statistics have highly developed analytical abilities and seek to gain insight into the financial applications of these skills. Students with a background in business and economics tend to have a better understanding of the context of financial applications, yet seek additional refinement of their analytical abilities. The MSQFE curriculum is sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of both streams.
The applications of Quantitative Finance are covered in each stream. Quantitative Finance includes the activities necessary to value financial assets and derivatives, manage price, credit and operational risks, evaluate and select appropriate investment strategies, examine complex issues requiring data analysis, model estimation and strategy formation.
