The Financial Engineering Hub at Baruch

On May 9. 2021, Baruch College President S. David Wu announced the launch of the Financial Engineering Hub at Baruch — a collaboration between the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences and the Zicklin School of Business. This interdisciplinary enterprise will build on our world-renowned Baruch MFE Program, draw on the excellence of our faculty in both schools, and grow to include new degree offerings and a center for corporate engagement and partnership.

The Financial Engineering Hub will extend our expertise worldwide with a range of programs and resources that will roll out in the coming months and years.

In the short term, co-chairs and a Steering Committee comprised of faculty from Weissman and Zicklin will be named. The committee will be charged with monitoring the evolution of the field, proposing refinements to the existing curriculum, and developing new offerings such as dual-degree, executive, and non-degree programs.

In the fall, the forthcoming public-facing Center for Financial Engineering will offer partnership and networking opportunities and will be guided by an Advisory Council comprised of industry leaders. The academic Financial Engineering program will continue to evolve and grow within the discipline, offering students the finest education in the field. Together, the Center for Financial Engineering and the Financial Engineering academic programs present Baruch students, alumni, and industry professionals unsurpassed and comprehensive opportunities for intellectual and professional advancement and engagement.
