The Computational Finance and Risk Management (CFRM) program addresses the demand in the financial services industry for advanced quantitative computational finance competencies and next-generation risk management skills. CFRM provides students with a rigorous mathematical and statistical foundation as well as extensive instruction in the use of open source R-programming. The program courses are taught by an interdisciplinary team of professors with backgrounds in Applied Mathematics, Economics, and Statistics as well as a diversified set of financial industry professionals who serve as adjunct instructors. Established by the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington, the CFRM program offers rigorous and relevant instruction grounded in both theory and practice. Recognizing the rapidly changing landscape in finance, CFRM adapts to equip students with skills and knowledge that will enable them for future success.
