The Master of Science in Computational Finance is a joint degree between the College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM) and the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business (KGSB).
The objective of this program is to offer students the opportunity to acquire both the ability to understand existing financial models in a quantitative and mathematical way, and the ability to implement these models in the form of computer programs. This program differs from a regular MS in Finance because of a stronger mathematical component and the addition of an intensive computational component. The program aims to produce graduates with the required qualifications to become "quantitative financial analysts". The Computational Finance graduates will be able to apply these quantitative tools to solve complex problems in the areas of portfolio management, risk management, and financial engineering.
