Hofstra’s Master of Science in Finance program is ranked 43rd nationally by The Financial Engineer. One of the more successful tracks of Zarb’s MS Finance program is its Risk Management concentration. Dr. Karagozoglu hopes that this success will encourage financial regulators – the SEC, CFTC, OCC, FINRA and the Fed- as well as the exchanges to hire top ranked risk management degree holders from Hofstra University’s Zarb School of Business.

An unprecedented rapid decrease AND increase, by more than 5% in each direction, within 20 minute time period between 2:32 PM and 2:52 PM ET was experienced in the U.S. stock market, i.e. in E-mini S&P 500 stock index futures prices.
