M.S. in Risk Management
Areas of Concentration
Students will choose one of three areas of concentration: Accounting, which will prepare students to sit for the CPA exam, Finance, which will prepare students for the series of exams to be designated as a Chartered Financial Analyst and for select actuarial exams, and Dynamic Financial Analysis (DFA) Modeling, which will give computer science students training in designing models applicable to a variety of risk management applications, e.g. monitoring and risk aggregation applications, actuarial models, hedging models, and asset-liability management models.
Accounting majors or students graduating in any of the majors leading to the Bachelors of Business Administration at Queens College may have adequate prerequisites to complete the Accounting of Finance concentration degree programs, respectively, in 20 credits. Students with other backgrounds, such as Mathematics, Economics and Computer Sciences, may have adequate prerequisites to complete the DFA concentration in 30 credits. Students with other backgrounds may need to complete additional courses for any other concentrations.
