Professional Development Programs

See how CFEM helps our students to establish strong, professional connections in our videos on CFEM Networking and FE Career Bootcamps.

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 the CFEM Associate Director of Career Development.

Professional development has been fully integrated within the FE curriculum and includes some coursework that is required.
