Joint Certificate Program in
Financial Engineering (Part time - Weekend)

Financial Engineering, or Quantitative Finance, as it is alternately known, is a multidisciplinary field involving the application of theories from financial economics, physics, mathematics, probability, statistics, operations research and econometrics using the methods and tools of engineering and the practice of computer programming to solve the problems of Investment Finance.

Financial Engineering has emerged as a very prospective career prospect for people from engineering background. The best of the MNC companies like MNC Software companies (like Oracle Financials, SunGard, Numerix, etc.), MNC Consulting Companies (like Accenture, CapGemini, PWC, KPMG, etc.), Investment Banks (like Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, etc.), Indian Software companies (like Wipro, Infosys, etc.), large Broking Companies (Sharekhan, Edelweiss, Motilal Oswal, etc.) and other Analytics companies hire engineers having domain skills for “Quantitative Analyst” jobs.

This is also a very rewarding and exciting career option for software engineers as there is much greater scope for quickly progressing in career and also applying their creative skills to design new things, like designing risk analytics systems.
