Quantitative Financial Economics (QFE) offered by Oklahoma State University embraces the role of advanced mathematics in applied finance. There is an extensive use of mathematics, probability theory, and financial economics in the MSQFE program. This program trains students not to become an employee with quantitative skills but financial managers who are equipped with a thorough understanding of quantitative finance.
Students graduating from the Program are equipped to apply the tools of quantitative analysis in a wide range of career paths. Their skills are demanded by energy, financial services, risk measurement and management, and investment management firms.

Oklahoma State University and the Watson Graduate School of Management have long standing relationships with industrial, energy and financial services firms throughout the nation. MSQFE students have ample opportunities to interact with representatives of these companies on campus at career fairs and program participants benefit from the services provided by the Student Success Center to prepare for the job application process and for job interviews. MSQFE students also network with program alumni every fall during our alumni weekend.
The MSQFE Program in the Watson Graduate School of Management offers students considerable flexibility in customizing a plan of study when earning the MSQFE degree. Students may choose between three specializations in the MSQFE program: Financial Engineering, Risk Management, and Investment Management.

The RITC brings together teams from top finance programs from around the globe to compete in a variety of trading environments. Financial support for the trading team is provided by donations from alumni and key program stakeholders.
