More tips on how MBA MFE grads can a quant job or quant career

This was provided by one of our readers named Chris:

It always boils down to what you want to do.

Stay in school?
Then continue the education process. When the bills get to big and you need a job there are quant jobs out there to be had. (Will probably need Masters or better in one of Math, Physics, MFE) to get the first gig)

Work for a hedge fund?
Yep… you’ll definitely need Masters/PhD in a Math based program.

Build trading system?
No need to wait you can do this right now. Just pick a platform/language that you’re comfortable with and look for a broker that has an API that you can plug in to.

Now the best option might also be a combination of both… stay in school while you build your trading system. (or work while you build it…)

The school/work question is always difficult. Good luck!

This won’t help with the school/work question but its a great book about trading systems.
