The New York University Tandon School of Engineering’s Financial Engineering master’s program has been named among the best in the 2019 TFE Times ranking.

One of the longest-running and largest such programs, the NYU Tandon Financial Engineering master’s moved up three places from the 2018 ranking, putting the program at the number-four spot, ahead of the University of Illinois Urbana-ChampaignRensselaer Polytechnic InstituteJohns Hopkins University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of California, Los AngelesNYU’s Mathematics in Finance program at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences was also included among the leaders.

TFE Times rankings are based on mean GRE scores, mean starting salary and bonus, mean undergraduate GPA, acceptance rate, full-time graduates employed at graduation and three months after graduation, total number of distinct courses available and total research expenditures, all areas in which the department enjoys strong statistics already or is improving rapidly.

Eighty seven percent of NYU Tandon’s financial engineering graduates who were seeking employment found positions within three months of graduation, and starting salaries averaged $91,000. NYU Tandon has 276 students studying financial engineering in a customized educational environment, with small class sizes (averaging 15, and none larger than 30) and more than 50 course offerings.

“We are gratified that TFE Times recognizes the work of our faculty in shaping our academic research to reflect — and in some cases drive —shifts in the field of financial engineering,” said Peter Carr, chair of the Department of Finance and Risk Engineering. “Our focus on financial technology in areas like machine learning, pair theory with practice and prepare our students for highly sought quant, risk, and tech careers,” he said.

“We are thrilled to see the Department of Finance and Risk engineering achieve such a stellar position in the TFE Times rankings,” said Jelena Kovačević, Dean of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. “This is an affirmation of the department and faculty’s ability to attract the best and brightest students, push the boundaries in scholarship, expand access with new programs, and create a fertile environment for training the next generation of experts to better access today’s financial industry, as well as projecting future trends.”

Within the last year the department has added 12 courses on machine learning and several on cryptocurrencies and blockchain, as well as cloud computing, Advanced Fixed Income, High Frequency Trading, and an Advanced Risk and Portfolio Management boot camp.

Faculty from around the world actively participate in comprehensive analysis and assessment of risks in application areas including financial risk management, derivatives, credit risk, default models in finance, black swans and rare events finance, global warming, infrastructure and water finance and sustainability, safety and security, healthcare, cybersecurity, and investments.

Will Bagley, a journalist known for monumental nonfiction books about the Mormon West and overland trails, will receive the 2019 Owen Wister Award for Lifetime Contributions to Western Literature from Western Writers of America (WesternWriters.org).

Bagley will also be inducted into the Western Writers Hall of Fame, housed outside the McCracken Research Library at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyo.

“People either love or hate me,” said Bagley, who lives in Salt Lake City. “The Wister Award is an expression of affection from my WWA friends that is appreciated and humbling, for it calls to mind the words ‘I am not worthy!'”

The nonprofit guild’s highest honor will be presented during Western Writers of America’s convention June 19-22 in Tucson, Ariz.

Bagley is a three-time winner of WWA’s Spur Award for “Blood of the Prophets: Brigham Youngand the Massacre at Mountain Meadows”; “The Mormon Rebellion: America’s First Civil War, 1857-1858”; and “With Golden Visions Bright Before Them Trails to the Mining West, 1849–1852,” all published by the University of Oklahoma Press.

Bagley has also received the Western Heritage Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Caroline Bancroft History Prize. His books have also been honored by Westerners International, Utah Division of State History, Wyoming State Historical Society and the John Whitmer Historical Association.

“Will is not just a tenacious researcher, he is a brilliant writer,” WWA executive director Candy Moulton said. “His ‘Blood of the Prophets’ is a classic – impeccably researched and written with precision.”

Bagley’s other books include “South Pass: Gateway to a Continent” and “So Rugged and Mountainous: Blazing the Trails to Oregon and California, 1812–1848,” both Spur Award finalists.

Since the early 1950s, Western Writers of America has honored and promoted all forms of literature about the American West. Previous Owen Wister honorees include Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday; historians David Dary and Robert M. Utley; and best-selling novelists Rudolfo Anaya, Elmore Leonard, Tony Hillerman and Lucia St. Clair Robson.

The Wister Award is a bronze statue of a buffalo created especially for Western Writers of America by artist Robert Duffie.

Dr. John P. Lederach to Get 36th Niwano Peace Prize

The Niwano Peace Foundation will award the 36th Niwano Peace Prize to Dr. John Paul Lederach, Professor Emeritus of International Peacebuilding at the Kroc Institute for Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame and a Distinguished Scholar at Eastern Mennonite University in the United States.

An award presentation ceremony will take place in Tokyo on May 8 at 10:30 a.m. In addition to an award certificate, Dr. Lederach will receive a medal and a cash prize of 20 million yen.

In many war-torn settings like Colombia, Nepal, Northern Ireland and Somalia, Dr. Lederach has provided accompaniment for local communities most affected by decades of violence. As a practitioner-scholar, his academic work draws on this rich experience in the field as a mediator, negotiator, peacebuilding practitioner, trainer and consultant.

In selecting Dr. Lederach as a recipient for 2019, the Niwano Peace Prize Committee said he “has helped support and encourage evolving peace processes, give voice to those on the margins of society and empower ordinary citizens to transform ongoing and emerging conflict in a healthy and positive way.”

Moreover, his “contribution on conflict transformation through his teaching, training, practicing and his own organizational network has given tremendous inspiration and courage to peace activists and practitioners around the world,” it said.

Niwano Peace Prize:
The Niwano Peace Foundation established the Niwano Peace Prize to honor and encourage individuals and organizations that have contributed significantly to inter-religious cooperation, thereby furthering the cause of world peace, and to make their achievements known as widely as possible. The foundation hopes in this way both to enhance inter-religious understanding and cooperation and to encourage the emergence of still more persons devoted to working for world peace. The prize is named in honor of the founder and first president of the lay Buddhist organization Rissho Kosei-kai, Nikkyo Niwano.

Niwano Peace Foundation:
The Niwano Peace Foundation was chartered in 1978 to contribute to the realization of world peace and the enhancement of a culture of peace. The foundation promotes research and other activities based on a religious spirit and serves the cause of peace in such fields as education, science, religion and philosophy.
