Junior-Senior Year courses taken at Seton Hall towards the M.S. in Financial Engineering:

  • Take the graduate course DAVA 7000 Data Visualization which will count towards FE550 Data Visualizations Applications in the M.S. in Financial Engineering.
  • Students wishing to obtain the M.S. in Financial Analytics take MATH 6611 Operations Research Operations Research that counts towards FE646 Optimization Models and Methods in Finance.
  • Take the graduate course MATH 6721 Financial Calculus (required for B.S. in Financial Mathematics) that counts towards FE530 Introduction to Financial Engineering for the M.S. in Financial Engineering.
  • Take the graduate course MATH 6722 Adv Topics Financial Calculus (required for B.S. in Financial Mathematics) which counts towards FE543 Introduction to Stochastic Calculus for Finance for the M.S. in Financial Engineering as well as the B.S. in Financial Mathematics.

If the student chooses to take all 4 courses at Seton Hall, only three will be accepted for a total of 9 credits at Stevens. Students must attain a minimum grade of B in any SHU course to transfer to Stevens.
