My experience at Baruch was outstanding. The faculty is exceptionally competent and directly connected to the financial industry. I was lucky enough to be part of one of last Salih Neftçi class, who was one of the most gifted teachers and researchers in financial engineering.
The classes were always up to date in terms of current needs in industry: I was able to take the Structured Finance class and make a career out of it very easily due to the high quality of the teaching. Also, the program emphasizes the need for strong programming skills; learning C++ was mandatory which helped tremendously when looking for a job.
Finally the placement support offered at Baruch is extremely professional and that’s why I was able to work right after I graduated and became a senior financial engineer at one of the biggest hedge fund in the world.
