We understand the toolbox required of a young quant—math, statistics, coding, stochastic processes, numerical methods technical writing, data, AI and good communications skills.

The Rutgers Master of Quantitative Finance Program is a unique and exciting degree program designed to prepare you for employment in this interdisciplinary, technologically sophisticated, specialized field.

Become a career "quant"

Since the financial crisis, the financial services industry has been undergoing major changes, including regulatory and structural reforms and increased market complexity. The impact of this on companies and their staffing needs is an important influence on our program’s curriculum and the way we help prepare our students to pursue their careers.

Industry Demand

The demand for quants is coming from beyond the banking industry. Asset managers, exchanges, software providers, regulators and others market participants are looking to add to their technical capabilities. The jobs involve skills required to calculate risk in a portfolio, predict commodity prices, price mortgage-backed securities, create algorithmic trading strategies, develop and validate models for risk capital measurement and regulatory compliance.

A Modern Approach to Career Management

A dedicated career manager. A career management and development course. Internships, networking, career fairs, experiential learning, case competitions. It's all part of our commitment to make our students job ready.

STEM Designated

The Master of Quantitative Finance program qualifies as a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field for international students that are considering Optional Practical Training (OPT).

More information about OPT and STEM is available at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
