2: Graduates will be able to evaluate and correlate stochastic processes. Assessed in FIN 655

Rubrics:

0 = No understanding of stochastic processes.

1 = Understands what a stochastic process is but is not able to evaluate and correlate a

stochastic process.

3: Graduates will be able to forecast stochastic events in finance and related fields as weather

(hurricanes, floods, volcanoes) Assessed in FIN 655, FIN 658

Rubrics:

0 = Does not understand and is unable to forecast stochastic events in finance and related fields.

1 = Understands but is unable to forecast stochastic events in finance and related fields.

2 = Is able to forecast stochastic events in finance and related fields by distinguishing what

approach can be used to forecast the particular stochastic event.

4: Graduates will have the computational skills to program complex stochastic processes in

finance and related fields. Assessed in FIN 652, FIN 659

Rubrics:

0 = Lack in understanding how to program or create a program of a complex stochastic process.

1 = Programming skill is adequate but is unable to program complex stochastic processes.

2 = Is able to program and program a financial process in finance or a related field.

investment banking industry as well as in related fields. Assessed in FIN 653, FIN 656, FIN 661

Rubrics:

0 = Students are unable to identify and apply processes in the insurance, risk management, and

investment banking industry as well as related fields.
