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.
