Your future looks bright!
Finance, like so many other industries, is facing rapid changes thanks to technology and innovation. Today’s employers need qualified financial experts who are equipped to make the right decisions in that evolving world. New positions require both quantitative and technical skills on top of financial expertise. Deep finance knowledge coupled with training in computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and econometrics can open doors.
At Northeastern, we know what recruiters are looking for in the field of finance. That’s why we designed our MS in Finance to prepare you specifically for the opportunities created by advances in technology.
