Why Hire from NYU Tandon MSFE?
Diversity in Coursework & Personalized Instruction
Over 50 department-specific courses are offered to the Tandon MSFE students each semester. The NYU Tandon MSFE average class size is around 15 students, and no classes are larger than 30.
Practical and Industry-focused
The NYU Tandon MSFE curriculum relies extremely heavily on industry participation in order to function in a way that bridges the gap between theory and practice. For the Tandon MSFE, integration with industry not just a “nice to have,” it’s a “must have.” In the 2018-19 academic year, over 10 new industry professors were brought on board, and that number continues to grow. The program is constantly evolving and adapting to the ever-changing climate of the industry and markets.
Distinguished Thought Leadership
The department Chair, Professor Peter Carr, brings years of experience leading global quant groups at Morgan Stanley and Bloomberg as well as accomplishments ranging from being named Risk Magazine’s 2003 Quant of the Year and the 2010 IAQF/SunGard Financial Engineer of the Year, to making Institutional Investor’s Tech 50 List (2013-2015) and beyond. Like Peter, the program is proud to have former trader and influential author Dr. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the global bestselling author of The Black Swan, Antifragile, and other world-renowned publications. Rounding out Tandon’s complement of thought leaders is Tandon’s MSFE Program Founder, Professor Charles Tapiero, the Topfer Chair Distinguished Professor of Financial Engineering and Technology Management and co-founder and co-editor in chief of Risk and Decision Analysis.
