Why Baruch MFE

We offer a high quality education. Our graduates are very successful in the job market, even in the current market conditions.

We enroll only the most qualified applicants, and we do not have a minimum number of seats to fill. Our students work together in small teams and learn from each other, fostering a sense of camaraderie and strong connections even as alumni. Our students are competitive and driven to succeed.

Our active alumni formed the Baruch Financial Engineering Alumni Association in 2006. The Association offers one-on-one mentoring to all students wishing to participate.

Prospective candidates have direct access to our students, alumni, and faculty via online chats, information sessions, or by attending classes during the semester.

Admission to the program is selective (the acceptance rate for the Fall 2012 cohort was 6%) and we have small class sizes (the Fall 2012 cohort consisted of 23 full-time and 8 part-time students). Promising candidates whose applications were rejected are invited to learn how to strengthen their applications and are encouraged to re-apply.

Detailed numbers and information about employment data and admission statistics can be found on our webpage.

The student body of the Financial Engineering MS Program at Baruch College is as diverse as could be expected from a school in the City University of New York educational system. No matter what your background is, it is likely that we have students or alumni with a similar background.

The Financial Engineering MS Program at Baruch College is located in New York City, arguably the most exciting financial capital of the world.
