Quantitative Finance is an area where STEM meets finance and is a field that is heavily reliant on models and complex analysis. Students interested in this concentration should be quantitatively inclined as the curriculum will be challenging and incorporate higher-level courses in Math, Statistics, Analytics and Computer Science. When woven in with a major in Finance, a student will exit the program prepared to become not only a "quant" but a quant who is well rounded and well versed in all areas of finance. After consulting with industry experts, the AQF curriculum curated and enhanced to best serve the student and to meet not only the current needs of employers, but future needs as well. Unlike other majors and minors within VSB, this rigorous concentration will require specific admission following a students first year at Villanova and will require careful planning with an advisor to make sure the program can be completed in a normal course.
