Program Summary

The Master's in Quantitative and Computational Finance is a collaboration among Georgia Tech's Scheller College of Business, H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and the School of Mathematics. Students develop understanding of finance theory and practical institutional details, build a strong foundation in complex mathematical modeling, and learn to implement financial models on big data through a variety of statistical techniques using multiple programming languages like R, SAS, C++, Python and Matlab. These skills will be useful in structuring transactions, managing risk, constructing investment strategies, and analyzing financial data.

The quality of the students who graduate from our program is among the best in the world, as recognized by QuantNet and The Financial Engineer as among the top ten programs of its kind. Students are admitted from a competitive pool based on exceptional academic record as well as motivation and eagerness to succeed. We admit around 50 students in each cohort, resulting in approximately that many seeking summer internships, with equal number seeking full-time employment each year.
