Computing and Financial Management (CFM) is a structured program that challenges you to make connections between computer science, finance and professional work (or co-op). To be successful with this structure, you need to manage many different priorities and balance your studies.

To help you be successful, we offer a number of different academic resources to support in your studies from first year to graduation.
