This program is of interest to students with strong quantitative backgrounds in economics, mathematics, statistics, computer science, science and engineering.
The Financial Engineering Program is a Collaborative Program established in cooperation with the Faculty of Science and Engineering Department of Mathematics & Statistics. There are two different versions of this program:
Financial Engineering graduates will have the theoretical knowledge and specialized skills to develop new financial instruments and to understand the role of financial instruments within the broader economic and business contexts. Graduates will find career opportunities in the financial industry with banks, investment firms, brokerage houses and other financial institutions, as well as risk management departments of large corporations and consulting firms.
The applications of the no-arbitrage condition (no free lunch) are the basis for financial engineering. Implementation of this condition to financial markets has been the topic of research projects at York. New computer software and specialized textbooks for this field have been created specifically for the Financial Engineering Program at Schulich.
Students who are interested in the program must be approved by the Program Director. Please complete the Eligibility Questionnaire. Admission to the Financial Engineering Program is very competitive and thus students are advised to send in their eligibility questionnaires as soon as possible. The deadline for applications to be considered in the first round is November 15. Normally the admission decision will be communicated at the end of the Fall term so students can use their free elective in the Winter term toward the Financial Engineering Diploma. Students who apply after the deadline and are eligibile will be put on a wait list.
