Placement Statistics for Master in Financial Engineering Students

While the majority of our students have firm post-graduation plans by the time they graduate in the middle of December, some will find new job offers within the first months of the new year. Many new opportunities become available between February and May of the following year, and CFEM works closely with newly-minted alumni and recruiters to ensure high placement rates within 6 - 9 months after graduation.

**Detailed placement statistics for CFEM 2018 graduates will be available within 6 months after their graduation**
