Program Description

This program is managed and overseen by the Duke Financial Economics Center (DFE) in the Departments of Economics to train and develop quantitative financial economics skills linked to finance and related areas to prepare graduates for Ph.D. studies or related professions.

Most graduate classes are sufficiently small so that each student gets individual faculty attention. Very active workshops are available for students to work with their major professors on development of research projects. Opportunities for research are possible through the connections with scholars both in Economics, and at the Fuqua School of Business. Graduates will be awarded an M.S. degree in Quantitative Financial Economics.

Because students study sophisticated analytical tools beyond the level covered in undergraduate and business school environments, our students have a distinct advantage when proceeding to Ph.D. programs and other careers featuring quantitative financial analysis.
