Master of Science in Quantitative and Computational Finance

The Master of Science in Quantitative and Computational Finance (MS QCF) is a collaboration among the College of Business, the School of Mathematics, and the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. This is a sixteen-month interdisciplinary degree program that provides students with the practical skills and theoretical understanding they need to become experts in the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of the models used by the financial sector to structure transactions, manage risk, and construct investment strategies. Students require a thorough understanding of the principles, structures, and everyday activities of finance; an understanding of the mathematics used to model these financial activities; and knowledge of the techniques, such as programming, numerical analysis, statistics, optimization, and intuition, used to implement these models in finance.
