so i'm thinking of going into business

<p>particularly finance or financial analysis/engineering. Besides the obvious reqs (calculus, stats, econ, accounting, etc) any computer programming involved?</p>

<p>sorry if this question seems sort of weird or random.</p>

<p>Lots and lots of computer programming is involved in Financial Engineering.</p>

<p>Depending on the financial analyst position you get, there may or may not be computer programming involved.</p>

<p>Hi Ominous
what kind of programming, might I ask?</p>

<p>Whatever kind of programming is required.</p>

<p>I looked into a Computational Finance program that used a lot of R programming. It seems to be a popular language to learn, because it is relatively powerful and it is FREE.</p>

<p>In reality, Financial Engineers are people that have deep knowledge of computer science, math and finance/economics. </p>

<p>Once you learn computer science theory, the programming languages really don't matter too much. You just have to learn the individual nuances of each language.</p>
