The MS in Financial Engineering & Risk Management is a three semester, on-campus degree program. The program consists of 30 units (10 courses) to be completed over 12 months.
There are nine requirement courses and a final, semester-long capstone research project. In the capstone project, you will work on a real-world business problem based on your interests and career goals, and then set out to use everything you have learned along the way to create a solution.
By the time you are done, the work you have completed on your capstone project could make the transition into your chosen career feel like the next logical step.
