The interdisciplinary Bendheim Center for Finance offers a Master in Finance degree at Princeton University. 


Key facts

The distinctive feature of the Master in Finance program at Princeton University, which was ranked #1 by Risk.net in 2019 and Quantnet in their 2020 rankings, is its strong emphasis on financial economics, data analysis and technology, in addition to financial engineering and computational methods.

Graduates of our program have a solid understanding of the fundamental quantitative tools from economic theory, probability, statistics, optimization and computer science, all of which are becoming increasingly vital in the financial industry. 

The Master in Finance program helps prepare students for a wide range of careers both inside and outside the financial industry, including financial engineering and risk management, quantitative asset management, macroeconomic and financial forecasting, quantitative trading, financial technologies and applied research. 

Although the program does not require prior work experience in finance, in recent years having exposure to finance through internships, research and/or case workshops and competitions — has been essential in an increasingly challenging job market. The Bendheim Center provides extensive career assistance to students, including connections with our strong alumni network for internships and career opportunities.
