A cutting-edge, 31 credit-hour program.
The Lehigh MS in Financial Engineering program is a cutting-edge, 31 credit-hour program designed to provide a strong education in advanced finance and quantitative financial analysis tools using key concepts from financial theory, applied mathematics, and engineering. With these building blocks, graduates will become instrumental in the creation of innovative solutions for real financial problems, using state of the art analytical techniques and computing technology.
This challenging program is normally completed in two years. The program can be completed in less than two years with approval from a Program Director after a transcript review to determine if the previous coursework taken prior to Lehigh University aligns with a shorter degree completion timeline for the program. Lehigh University undergraduates accepted to the 4+1 Masters in Financial Engineering program have a pathway to complete the graduate degree in one year.
Students will often attend class with Ph.D. students. The curriculum is intended for career opportunities in areas such as portfolio management, securities trading, investment banking, risk management, and financial information systems.
