Program Description

The Master of Science in Financial Engineering and Risk Management (MS FERM) is a 36 credit-hour STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program in the Naveen Jindal School of Management. This Fintech program provides students with the practical and theoretical knowledge needed to pursue careers involving financial data analytics, financial technology, or risk management.

  • The program is designed for students with or without previous educational background in finance, but with a proclivity toward more quantitative approaches to managerial issues.
  • Students completing this program will have the knowledge necessary to take the:
    • Certified Corporate Financial Planning & Analysis Professional exam,
    • RMA Credit Risk Certification,
    • Financial Risk Manager (FRM) exam,
    • Enterprise Risk Management Certified Professional (ERMCP) exam,
    • or similar finance related certifications.
  • Students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) in their course work to qualify for the MS degree.

While our full-time program is a cohort program, we do offer a part-time program for working professionals. Both programs only begin each fall.

Prerequisites

Students with at least an undergraduate degree, though in any subject, are welcome to apply. However, students are required to have completed course work in calculus, linear algebra, probability/statistics, and programming with a B or better. Applicants who have not satisfied these requirements may be admitted but will need to satisfy the prerequisites through course work or other means selected by the program director prior to beginning the program course work.
