SMG’s Mathematical Finance program climbs three positions in Quantnet rankings

Boston University School of Management placed 14th on Quantnet’s list of the top master’s programs in financial engineering in North America, which represents a three-spot jump for the School.

The program, which integrates practical domains of mathematics with an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern finance, has become increasingly competitive, and recognizes that, within three months of graduation, 80 percent of students received job offers.

SMG ranked 11th in the world by Corporate Knights

Boston University School of Management’s MBA program placed 3rd among U.S. universities on the Corporate Knights Global Green MBA survey, which examines how universities around the world are faring at integrating sustainability into the academic experience. The School ranked 11th globally.

The Toronto-based business magazine, which focuses on clean capitalism, created the survey in 2003, concentrating solely on Canadian schools for the past decade. This year, the survey was expanded internationally to include MBA programs from 17 countries. Participating schools were assessed on institutional support, student initiatives, and coursework.

The School’s MBA program has incorporated various courses in its curriculum that emphasize sustainability, such as PL849: Global Sustainability, PL870: Government, Society and Sustainable Development, and SI841: Strategies for Environmental Sustainability.

Corporate Knights’ results also come only months after an MBA team from the School won first place in the P&G Sustainability Challenge, which required eight multidisciplinary teams from across the University to create and present ideas to a panel of managers from P&G, Gillette, Veolia, and NSTAR that might aid P&G in their efforts to increase their renewable energy consumption at the South Boston Gillette site.

The survey’s findings are indicative of the School’s dedication to implementing environmental responsibility and sustainability in all aspects of its educational process.
