All courses are delivered online and focus on applied projects.

Course Descriptions

The MSc in Financial Engineering is comprised of nine graduate-level courses as well as a Capstone course. Each of the nine courses consists of seven one-week-long modules with one-week breaks between courses. The final Capstone Course during which students complete a culminating Capstone project is 10 weeks long.

They are persistent, resilient, and committed to meeting the demands of our rigorous program and to mastering advanced concepts.
