UD’s Financial Services Analytics (FSAN) doctoral program began with the first cohort of students in 2014. It forges a link between different fields of study and the corporate world via a partnership between the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics, the College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase. The program offers doctoral students financial support and access to top-notch facilities while they pursue an intensive program of research and learning with input from multiple disciplines. It’s competitive, with only a few students accepted every two years.
“As far as I know, there’s no (other) such a program at the Ph.D. level,” said Bintong Chen, DSI faculty council member and director of FSAN.
