The new Master of Science in Quantitative Finance program was developed in direct response to demand from employers in the financial industry for employees with strong quantitative skills. Areas such as hedge fund analysis, risk and portfolio management, and quantitative trading require sophisticated mathematical tools such as numerical analysis, optimization, and stochastic differential equations that are generally taught in math departments rather than in finance departments. The rationale behind the MSQF program has been to design a slate of math courses specifically intended to prepare students for applications to quantitative finance.

Students completing the MSQF program will have developed a rare slate of skills that will make them highly desirable in the financial job market.
