The Rady School of Management at UC San Diego has launched a one-year Master of Finance program that will offer training and methods of analyzing "big data" for financial decision making and risk management.
This program is the first of its kind for the Rady School, which also offers a full-time M.B.A., FlexMBA (evenings and weekends) and Executive Development courses.
Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan noted that the Master of Finance program will lead the development of new educational approaches to the challenges facing the financial sector.
"Given the financial industry's rapid changes, it is essential to provide students with the analytical and practical problem solving skills that will allow them to make significant contributions at financial institutions and regulatory agencies," said Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan. "The Rady School's Master of Finance program's emphasis on quantitative models and methods ensures graduates are equipped to develop innovative solutions to the complex problems facing the financial industry."
