Financial Services Analytics PhD Info Session
Wed, March 22, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
The financial services analytics (FSAN) program at the University of Delaware is the first of its kind, developing fundamental FSAN theories, creating new data-driven decision-making tools and technologies and training researchers and professionals.
The doctorate in FSAN differs from a traditional finance doctoral program in that it is truly interdisciplinary. It brings data analytics methods and non-traditional data sources to bear on issues important to the financial services industry, which differentiates it from programs in both finance and financial engineering (usually offered at the master’s level).
About Financial Services Analytics
Today big data is reshaping the way we live and the way businesses operate. Its impact is especially profound in the financial services industry, where abundant data comes from many sources including financial markets, customer records and transactions and digitalized business operations.
Financial services analytics is the science of quantitative models and technologies designed for the financial services industry. It offers improvements in risk management, enhanced customer service, customized product offerings and more efficient business operations.
FSAN is a rapidly-evolving area of academic research driven by business needs ranging from credit card fraud detection to mobile customer service. The underlying business problems are unique, complicated and intriguing, warranting in-depth and systematic study.
We accept students every other year. Highly-qualified students may receive research scholarships to cover all educational expenses in the program.
