The Department of Finance and Risk Engineering has moved to its new location at

12 Metrotech Center, 26th Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11201

***When entering the building, all students and other members of the NYU community are required to show their NYU ID and sign in at the
security desk.

NYU Tandon's Department of Finance and Risk Engineering (FRE) is an innovative and exciting place to pursue an MS in Financial Engineering.

As one of the largest programs of its kind in the US, students can choose from over fifty different courses, bridging theory with practice.

Strategically located in downtown Brooklyn's Metrotech center, FRE is just two subway stops away from Wall Street.

With most classes taught by experienced practitioners, students have unusually close access to state-of-the-art techniques in financial engineering.

Our experimental initiatives, spearheaded by the department’s new chairperson Peter Carr, allow for broad applications. Our graduates are often placed in Wall Street jobs alongside pension, government, and risk management positions.

The FRE Department is excited to announce that the incoming Fall 2016 students' average quant GRE scores were 169.3/170. Congratulations for this outstanding score!
