FinTech and Big Data Analytics Option (FBTA)

The FinTech and Big Data Analytics Option (FBTA) is designed to meet the increasing need in the finance industry for personnel who have both in-depth knowledge of finance and advanced analytical and computer science skills (STEM). This option contains a much more rigorous curriculum in math, statistics, and computer science than the typical finance degree and concludes with a capstone finance class that applies these technical skills to address cutting real-world financial problems. The option combines coursework from multiple disciplines in addition to the full traditional finance curriculum.
