It took me one week of job searching to get an offer. That is something I could not have said before Baruch’s MFE program. The unparalleled dedication of the faculty and the rigorous coursework will thoroughly prep you for a career in quantitative finance. It was a fun and challenging experience and I got to meet a lot of smart and interesting people in the process.
