The M.S. in Financial Technology and Analytics (MFTA) program prepares students for careers in the emerging and rapidly growing area of financial technology and analytics. The MFTA degree provides an interdisciplinary experience across finance, data analytics, and data sciences in response to this near-ubiquitous and growing demand for financial-analytic skills blended with technology.
The program offers both on-line and in-person courses.
With its flexible curriculum that nimbly responds to changes in labor market demands, the program will produce graduates who will possess the technological and analytical skills that meet these demands.
The three-fold learning objective underlies the program, as follows:
- Enhance technical expertise: The program is designed to increase knowledge in financial technology, including programming languages, data analytics, machine learning, and blockchain technology;
- Analyze financial data: The program aims to inform students on the analysis of time series and cross-sectional financial data, including the identification of trends, patterns, and insights – what the data reveal and conceal; and
- Design financial products that provide innovative solutions: The program endeavors to advance the ability of students to create financial products that drive efficiency gains and cyber-security protection through digitalization and digital transformation.
