Financial Analytics

The Financial Analytics Center will bring together expertise in finance theory, machine learning, statistics, signal processing, operations, and natural language processing, and will support collaborations with an appropriately trained student body as well as with the financial industry. The result will be entrepreneurial ventures with the potential to define finance and financial engineering for the 21st century. For instance, one of Columbia's statisticians is working with Columbia Technology Ventures (CTV) to develop a startup based on statistical algorithms for predicting market moves with greater accuracy. The Center will be housed on the Morningside campus.
