The MFE degree at Cornell has an exceptionally strong curriculum that has prepared me well for success in a variety of career paths within finance. It has exposed me to professors, students, and industry professionals that have been crucial to my career success.
Professional Development Programs
In addition to the Ithaca campus career service resources, Cornell MFEs have access to comprehensive professional development training and job search assistance offered by CFEM. Over the years, CFEM leadership has developed a broad career development program to prepare our students for their careers in quantitative finance. The professional development programs range from FE Career Bootcamps in New York City to networking and interviewing workshops for individual assessments and preparation. Cornell MFEs work directly with CFEM Associate Director of Career Development, Elizabeth Drummond.
Professional development has been fully integrated within the FE curriculum and includes some coursework that is required.
I am glad I chose Cornell MFE because people here actually care about you and your future career path.
