It’s no surprise that New York University Tandon School of Engineering led a list of the 40 best universities for technology jobs at financial services firms in the United States, by eFinancialCareers. Princeton University ranks in second place, followed by Rutgers University, Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University, and the University of Illinois.
