Master of Science in Quantitative Finance
The Finance and Real Estate Department participates in several graduate degree programs including the Ph.D. in Business Administration, the Master of Business Administration, the Master of Science in Quantitative Finance and the Master of Science in Real Estate. In the Ph.D. in Business Administration, courses in finance and real estate prepare students for careers in teaching, research, business, and government. Concentrations in both finance and real estate are offered in the M.B.A. program (see Interdepartmental and Intercampus Programs for degree requirements). The M.S. in Quantitative Finance provides an in-depth exposure to the quantitative aspects of finance. The M.S. in Real Estate provides students in-depth training in real estate decision making.
The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance degree program is designed to meet the growing demand for financial professionals equipped to implement state-of-the-art analytical techniques in support of financial decision-making. Many firms head-quartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth area such as American Airlines, Alcon Labs, J.C. Penney, Fidelity, Burlington Northern and Lockheed Martin, employ financial analysis techniques that did not exist thirty years ago. As the only program of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, UT Arlington's Master of Science in Quantitative Finance is uniquely designed to fulfill a strategic role in the education of the North Texas Labor force. Students complete a rigorous seven-course sequence that includes: finance theory, mathematical finance, financial modeling, economic theory, and econometrics. Students then complete a five-course elective program designed jointly by the student and the program advisor. The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance degree program is a specialized degree program designed to build upon the candidate's prior background.
