Customized Track

A customized track provides students the opportunity to select courses spanning all tracks that meet their individual interests and career goals. Students interested in a customized track must obtain advance approval from the faculty advisor via a Statement of Purpose, which must include three elements:

  • Educational and career goals you would like to accomplish through the custom track
  • List of specific courses, totaling 7.5 credits that might constitute your program (keep in mind that certain courses may not be available every term).
  • Explanation of how/why your proposed track meets your goals better than the existing tracks.

Graduate students enrolled in other NYU graduate programs may request enrollment in FRE courses for up to 6 credits per semester with the approval of their graduate program advisor.

It is the students’ responsibility to consult with their academic advisor if the courses they plan to take satisfy degree requirements in their program, and to obtain approval to enroll in Financial Engineering courses via the FRE cross-registration form.
