The cross-disciplinary structure of the MFE program ensures that the program objectives are being served through the inclusion of faculty with specializations and research interests in finance. The Department of Economics provides a core understanding of the connection between the economy and finance at the macroeconomic and microeconomic levels. This is supported by specialized courses in Financial Econometrics and Financial Economics. The case-based approach of the Ivey Business School is a powerful method to obtain a deep understanding of material in both Corporate Finance and Empirical Asset Pricing.  Financial Modelling and Financial Option courses, offered by the Department of Statistical & Actuarial Sciences, provide a more quantitative aspect to the program. The MFE program is unique among similar programs in Canada, as students are required to be successful in Securities Regulation, offered by the Faculty of Law, which highlights the rules, regulations, and ethics associated with managing others’ investments.
