Finance students don’t just study money, they study how money interacts with risk and time. Understanding this relationship is critical to helping individuals, companies and governments make wise decisions about managing capital, investing or borrowing funds, optimizing returns, and staying financially sound.
At Isenberg, we prepare our students for a career in finance by offering diverse curricular specialties in corporate finance, financial analyst, financial risk management, and alternative investments. Our rigorous, progressive curriculum immerses students in current issues and practices through hands-on problem solving and teamwork, including real-time data analysis using Bloomberg terminals, internships with premier financial firms, and participation in student-managed funds.
Our internationally prominent faculty members are renowned for research in investments, including hedge funds, mutual funds, risk management, stock market anomalies, international investments, tax evasion, options, fixed income derivatives, and financial econometrics.
Our high-profile Center for International Securities and Derivative Markets (CISDM) underscores our longstanding leadership in alternative investments education and research. Through CISDM, students gain access to the Morningstar CISDM Database, the oldest hedge fund and commodity trading advisor data base on the market. And they gain an “inside industry” edge into how those markets perform and evolve.
