Financial managers and related professionals are playing an increasingly important role in mergers, consolidations, global expansion, and financing, where their extensive specialized knowledge helps to reduce risks and maximize profit. The role of these professionals is also changing in response to technological advances; finance professionals now perform more analysis and serve directly with senior management in planning for profit maximization. The Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs-Newark and New Brunswick's 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.
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.
