B.S. in financial technology

Develop a comprehensive background in finance, accounting, IT, predictive modeling and statistics with a bachelor’s degree in financial technology. Our program is designed to meet the growing need for quantitative modeling and analysis in finance, risk management and actuarial science.

We’re rated a Level II actuarial program by the Society of Actuaries, which means you’ll graduate well-prepared to take the first three professional exams given by SOA or the Casualty Actuarial Society.

Curriculum

We take a different approach than other schools by offering two tracks that represent high-demand skills in the finance field:

  • Actuarial science: Prepare for the basic professional examinations and continued study in actuarial science.
  • Financial engineering: Specialize in derivative instruments, securities, hedging, financial risk assessment, quantitative trading and asset/liability management.

Career opportunities

The financial engineering track offers opportunities in areas such as derivative instruments, securities, hedging, financial risk assessment/management, quantitative trading and arbitrage, and asset/liability management. Students who complete the financial engineering track may choose to continue their education by enrolling in master’s programs in financial engineering and mathematical finance, or by entering directly into doctoral-level study in finance and related areas.
