Math Finance Program Receives National Ranking

UNC Charlotte’s Master of Science in Mathematical Finance program recently was ranked No. 25 in the country by Financial Engineer.

This is the first national ranking for the Mathematical Finance program, which currently enrolls more than 100 students. The 2015 rankings are calculated based on a series of factors, including average GRE scores, starting salaries and bonuses, undergraduate GPA, acceptance rates and the number of employed graduates.

"Recognition of our Mathematical Finance program as one of the top programs in the nation demonstrates the success and competitiveness of a program we have built in partnership with the region’s leading corporations and as an interdisciplinary collaboration at UNC Charlotte," said Steve Ott, dean of the Belk College of Business. "We are very proud of our students and graduates, many of whom are successful contributors in leading financial corporations nationwide."
