On June 3, students in the inaugural cohorts of the new one-year master’s programs offered jointly by NYU Shanghai and NYU Stern, the MS in Quantitative Finance and MS in Data Analytics & Business Computing programs, arrived on Stern’s campus for orientation and the start of classes.

The programs, both aimed at preparing new and recent college graduates for successful careers in the rapidly evolving marketplaces of analytics and finance in China and Asia, entail 12 months of full-time study over three semesters in two global hubs, starting with this summer semester at NYU Stern in New York City followed by fall and spring semesters in China at NYU Shanghai.

During the three-month summer term at NYU Stern, students will engage in six courses taught by Stern faculty, covering topics such as Python programming and Statistics in the Data Analytics program, and Emerging Markets Finance and Corporate Finance in the Quantitative Finance program. At the end of August, students will head to NYU Shanghai for the fall and spring semesters, where they will complete coursework in FinTech, Data Driven Decision Making, and a culminating capstone project.
