I have a question regarding opinion on a few masters in quantitative finance: LSE (MSc in Financial Mathematics), Rutgers, Baruch, NYU. I would appreciate any advice, opinion, career opportunities.
about Rutgers ask Marysienke!
I havent gone to those programs but they are pretty prestigious and hard to get into. If you can get into the NYU program for example and be able to pass all the courses (this stuff is some of the hardest material you can learn), you will definitely be able to push yourself through into a good paying job in finance with over 100k salary to start with. Its a question of whether you can get in there and understand what the professor is talking about.
Did the Masters in quantitative Finance at London Business School. (LBS). Reputation is great (FT ranking No 1) and program is tough but focus is more on Finance than quant Finance. So obviously depends on what you want… Look at Cass Business School.
I would pit the SUNY–Stony Brook program up against any program. Also, the discussion omitted the University of Chicago’s program. I am always fascinated by how these programs use tools developed by department of statistics but somehow statisticans don’t get the same recognition. At the end of the day, all that matters is an ability to be self taught (which is where most learning is done) and the passion to succeed in your chosen endeavor. The “prestige school” may get you an entry level job, but within short order performance on the job will separate wheat from chaff. See http://www.ams.sunysb.edu/~frey/QuantitativeFinance/ and http://www-finmath.uchicago.edu/
These are some good courses with ranking in US.
Any opinion on QF programme in Amsterdam?
