A master’s degree in quantitative finance is quickly becoming a staple of forward-thinking investors. The first quantitative finance program was developed in 1990 by Dr. Michael Ong at the Illinois Institute of Technology. In 2012, the McIntire School of Commerce introduced an undergraduate program for students with exceptional skill in quantitative fields of mathematics. Specialized fields include financial engineering, financial risk management, computer finance, and mathematical finance. Students who successfully earn a degree in quantitative finance are well trained in derivatives and fixed incomes. They are prepared to help companies with structuring, trading, investing, and in-depth analysis.
