Economics – Asset Management Concentration

It’s Your Time. Take the Lead.

Asset management is the process of developing, maintaining, operating, and selling the assets belonging to an individual or a company in the most efficient or cost-effective way possible. Students in our Asset Management concentration learn to evaluate investment opportunities, quantify risks and develop strategies for the deployment of financial assets. Students in this concentration go on to careers with investment management firms, hedge funds and commercial and investment banks.

The Asset Management Concentration

The Asset Management concentration bridges the gap that exists between economic theory and the performance of the financial markets. You will develop analytical skills by creating models that link relevant economic factors with fair value, risk and returns, and the financing of various assets, in order to find data-driven solutions to real-world problems.
