Financial Engineering - M.S. Program Requirements

The MSFE program requires the completion of 36 semester hours of coursework. The quantitative prerequisites for students applying to the program are:
  • Calculus: differentials, infinite series, Taylor’s formula, partial derivatives, multiple integrals.Linear Algebra: matrices, vectors, determinants, linear systems of equations, linear independence, bases, eigenvalues, eigenvectors.
  • Ordinary Differential Equations: 1st-order ODEs, solution techniques, initial value problems, exponential growth/decay, logistic model equilibrium, steady state 2nd-order linear constant-coefficient ODEs.
  • Probability: continuous and discrete distributions, multivariate distributions and independence, ordinary and conditional expectations, Central Limit Theorem.
  • Statistics: regression analysis including detection of and solutions to various violations of classic regression assumptions (heteroskedasticity, autocorrelation, multicollinearity and simultaneity).
  • Computer Programming: programming ability in a highlevel language such as C, C++, Fortran (77 or 90/95), Basic, Visual Basic or Matlab.
  • Economics: basic micro- and macroeconomic topics including supply and demand functions, market structure and the role of money.
Qualified students can be conditionally admitted on the basis of completing these summer workshops.
