Master of Science in Quantitative Finance (MSQF), Bradley University
Rigorous and interdisciplinary, Bradley’s Master of Science in Quantitative Finance (MSQF) prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of a career as a “quant.”
The use of quantitative analysis has resulted in increasing innovation and complexity within today’s financial marketplace. As the intricacy of financial innovation intensifies, the need for quantitative finance professionals, or “quants,” continues to grow across all business sectors.
MSQF students channel their voracious interest in mathematics, finance, and computer science in learning how their applications within complex problem-solving contexts can inform business and financial challenges such as new product development/pricing, portfolio structuring, scenario simulation, derivative securities valuation, and risk management.
Investing in an MSQF from Bradley can produce valuable dividends—helping to open the door to an intellectually and monetarily rewarding career in quantitative finance.
