ATLANTA –TFE Times ranks the Master of Science in Quantitative Risk Analysis and Management (M.S. in QRAM) at Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business as 16th in the nation among all financial engineering programs (up two spots), and 6th among public university programs.
Over the past four years, Robinson’s M.S. in QRAM (formerly M.S. in Mathematical Risk Management) has moved up 10 places on the TFE Times list. The program was ranked 26th in 2016.
The curriculum spans functional knowledge in risk analysis, modeling and credit analysis, and data analytics. Known as an early adopter of pioneering curricula, Robinson’s STEM-credentialed program is one of the first in the nation to offer a course on insurtech, an emerging application of technology which is increasing efficiency within the insurance industry. In addition to insurtech, the M.S. in QRAM also covers fintech, artificial intelligence, blockchain and machine learning.
According to program director Haci Akcin, the program soon will include applied innovation research projects in which faculty and students work with industry partners to solve real problems and develop prototypes of new products and services becoming possible through new technologies. The flexible-format program can be completed in 16 months if taken full-time or 24 months to five years if taken part-time.
“Our rise in the TFE Times rankings reflects the program’s innovative curriculum, the reputation of our faculty, the engagement of the business community, and the professional success of M.S. in QRAM alumni,” Akcin said.
