The MS in Financial Engineering at the School of Engineering gives students solid, specialized skills to bridge the gap between theory and practice in finance and financial engineering.
The School of Engineering Financial Engineering degree was initiated with the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and was the second program of its kind, anywhere. We were the first curriculum to be certified by the International Association of Financial Engineers. We offer a graduate program either on a full-time or part-time basis and seek collaboration with industry on research projects that allow students to apply their existing knowledge and acquire new insights into financial engineering and its many derivative professions. Currently, the MS-FE program at the School of Engineering is the largest program of its kind in the world with 350 graduate student candidates from all across the globe. Our faculty is comprised of adjunct, industry, and research professors, all with extensive practical expertise, who produce world-class research while teaching both introductory and advanced courses in a small class setting.
The School of Engineering's Financial Engineering program prepares its graduates to enter fast-moving, highly rewarding careers in commercial and investment banks, investment firms, insurance companies, pension funds, information technology development firms, and financial trading and risk management teams.
The department supports and conducts faculty and student research, seminars, and other learning activities through its Research Centers for Risk Engineering, Financial Technology, and the Center for Finance and Risk Engineering. The Department’s Research Centers actively participate in comprehensive analysis and assessment of risks in various application areas including financial risk management, derivatives, credit risk, default models in finance, black swans and rare events finance, global warming, infrastructure and water finance and sustainability, safety and security, health care, cyber-security, and investments. Collaborative research and exchanges are maintained with a large number of internationally recognized professors in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
