The Applied Statistics & Analytics emphasis includes a greater number of analysis and data management courses and fewer of the mathematics courses required for graduate study in statistics. The Statistical Science emphasis is designed to better prepare students for graduate studies in statistics.

The new Data Science emphasis teaches students to solve problems in the field of big data science. Students will take R, SAS, and Big Data Science courses and electives in Python programming, financial economics, survey sampling, SQL, and more.

MFC is a place where students with various technical backgrounds get a chance to learn about the quantitative side of finance such as financial engineering, algorithmic trading, modeling market risk, etc. So called "quants" of the financial industry play a bigger role nowadays than ever before with growing complexity of the markets structure and diversity. During meetings, students get exposed to mathematical models commonly used in finance theory, learn essential coding, and participate in various projects. Opportunities also include networking with hedge funds, banks' engineering divisions, and fin-tech firms.
