FIN-666 Advanced Quantitative Methods and Machine Learning in Finance (3) This course introduces prominent quantitative methods of financial data analysis, with an emphasis on practical implementation. The course covers topics in four main areas including investments and asset allocation, time series analysis and forecasting, machine learning applications in finance, and event studies and causal inference methods. Students gain a theoretical understanding of the methods and hands-on experience by implementing these methods in Python. Prerequisite: FIN-060 .

The purpose of this degree is to provide students with the knowledge and essential skills to respond to the changes and new challenges that characterize the fast-changing world of Quantitative Finance and Risk Analytics. The goal of the program is for students to master cutting-edge financial theory as well as advanced analytical and quantitative techniques that have become key to the success of the new breed of financial experts. Students will be exposed to emerging concepts, practices, and techniques in the finance industry through rigorous training in empirical research and modeling, using a variety of professional databases and computer software packages.

The QFRA Program is designed to allow for maximum flexibility for students from a variety of backgrounds wishing to pursue rigorous study in quantitative finance and risk analytics. It requires 30 credit hours for students with a Finance or Technical undergraduate background.

Foundation courses are basic courses in finance and quantitative methods that contain concepts that are prerequisite to understanding the principles of Quantitative Finance and Risk Analytics. These foundation courses are required for all students without undergraduate business degrees and for students whose backgrounds did not include coverage of comparable material. Students in Quantitative Finance and Risk Analytics with business undergraduate degrees may waive the Financial Management I course with the consent of the Program Adviser(s) if they have sufficient relevant undergraduate work. A student can waive this foundation course if he or she earned a B or better in an introductory finance course as well as a B or better in one higher level finance course. If this or any other course is waived, it must be replaced with some other course from the courses listed below. Therefore, waivers of any of these Foundation Courses will require substitutions from the Elective Courses lists.

Gain a distinct professional advantage with economics expertise, analytical abilities, and the capacity to apply economic analysis to real-world problems. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in international finance, public policy, economic development, or research, the MIEF program provides you with a firm grasp of the theory and tools of international economics and finance.

Most of the Applied Mathematics faculty teaching quantitative finance courses have extensive experience building quantitative trading systems on Wall Street. Because of their Wall Street backgrounds, our faculty are able to place many of their QF students in internships during the summer and the academic year at hedge funds and major investment companies. Few other QF programs offer internships. There is limited use of adjunct faculty who come to campus one or two evenings a week after work.

The Stony Brook Quantitative Finance program is unique among mathematical sciences departments in its very practical focus on 'alpha generation', Wall Street term for trading strategies for making money. Courses are centered on projects where students use real tick data to analyze and predict the performance of individual stocks and commodities, market indices and derivatives. Also, Stony Brook is one of a small number of quantitative finance programs offering PhD as well as MS training. Our PhDs have taken positions both in Wall Street firms and in university quantitative finance programs. For more information about our quantitative finance courses and faculty, see QF Courses and QF People.

The Quantitative Finance major aims to prepare students for a wide range of careers in the financial industry, including quantitative asset management and trading, financial engineering, risk management and applied research. The major places a strong emphasis on financial economics and data analysis, in addition to advanced quantitative and computational methods. It is designed to appeal to students with strong quantitative backgrounds who wish to develop their skills for quantitative applications in finance.

Although based in the Finance Department, the major will also include relevant cross-disciplinary content from accounting, statistics and operations, information and decisions. Some doctoral courses in Finance may also be counted towards this major. MBA students majoring in Quantitative Finance will have both the technical expertise that allows them to compete for quantitative positions in finance, and the generalist MBA experience that provides them with the necessary leadership skills to quickly rise to the top of their organizations.

This is a Doctoral level course. It provides students with an introduction to the frontier empirical methods commonly employed in finance research. The course is organized around empirical papers with an emphasis on econometric methods. A heavy reliance will be placed on analysis of financial data.

Quantitative methods have become fundamental tools in the analysis and planning of financial operations. There are many reasons for this development: the emergence of a whole range of new complex financial instruments, innovations in securitization, the increased globalization of the financial markets, the proliferation of information technology and the rise of high-frequency traders, etc. In this course, models for hedging, asset allocation, and multi-period portfolio planning are developed, implemented, and tested. In addition, pricing models for options, bonds, mortgage-backed securities, and other derivatives are studied. The models typically require the tools of statistics, optimization, and/or simulation, and they are implemented in spreadsheets or a high-level modeling environment, MATLAB. This course is quantitative and will require extensive computer use. The course is intended for students who have strong interest in finance. The objective is to provide students the necessary practical tools they will require should they choose to join the financial services industry, particularly in roles such as: derivatives, quantitative trading, portfolio management, structuring, financial engineering, risk management, etc.

This pathway is for social scientists who wish to learn advanced quantitative methods for secondary-data analysis, and apply these methods appropriately to answer particular substantive questions from their disciplines. This includes social scientists who are interested in interdisciplinary research that requires the application of quantitative methods from one discipline to problems in another.

This concentration is for students who seek rigorous training and critical exposure to the latest techniques of quantitative social science. Dramatic advances in statistical modeling, experimental design, and statistical analysis have created unprecedented opportunities for advancing knowledge across a wide range of disciplines. There is an ever-greater demand for scholars who can apply sophisticated theories of statistical inference to tackle challenging problems in areas like poverty, crime, health disparity, public opinion, political participation, human development, cognition and emotions, genes and environment, and knowledge diffusion.
