This program focuses on the role of statistical, computational, and econometric techniques in financial decision making. Subjects covered include portfolio allocation, risk management, analysis of complex financial instruments, company valuation, and corporate finance and governance. In order to prepare students for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam, JHU includes a major portion of the CFA Institute’s Candidate Body of Knowledge into the MS in Finance curriculum.
