Financial Analytics

Take your career in finance to the next level by applying your skills in mathematics and business to help solve real-world financial challenges.

Some of the most rewarding careers in finance involve more than just crunching numbers.  Canada’s financial industries have a growing demand for graduates who also possess quantitative analytical skills — skills that help guide businesses and individuals with their most important investment decisions. 

Combining mathematics, statistics, economics, business, and computing, Trent’s one-of-a-kind Financial Analytics degree program will teach you to treat investing as a science. As you learn to analyze industry trends and implement real-world data models, you’ll set yourself up for an exciting career in an increasingly complex financial world.
