I am pleased to announce that our M.S. in Financial Engineering & Risk Analytics (soon to be Quantitative Finance & Risk Analytics) has been ranked #18 in The Financial Engineer’s recently-released 2014 rankings.
While the value of rankings is often debated, there is certainly value in being recognized as an academic leader in the field.  Learn more about our M.S. in Financial Engineering & Risk Analytics here.

Application Review UpdateThe Round Three (3) deadline has officially passed, and we’ve now moved into our rolling admission phase for U.S. applicants.  Those waiting for decisions from Round 2 should hear by our notification date of April 1st at the latest, and Round 3 applicants can expect to hear far sooner than June 15th (as visa processing for accepted international students is time-sensitive).This has been one of our most competitive application seasons to date, with increases in volume, diversity, and selectivity within our suite of six master’s programs.  It is helpful to know that we do not offer admission based on quantitative factors alone; our faculty review applications thoroughly and craft a class based on a wide variety of factors.
Now it is time to begin next year’s recruitment adventures once again.  Spring travel will be announced shortly, summer/fall travel will make it on the calendar in late spring, and the new application deadlines will be published in early summer.  This time each year, I am renewed by the cyclical nature of admissions.  We look forward to welcoming new faces on campus - many of whom we’ve met on the road - and connecting with new prospective students all over again.  Renewal awaits!Pictured: Downtown Troy
