Who We're Looking For

Summary

Career opportunities for quantitative analysts, or “quants”, are growing rapidly within the financial services industry. Quants leverage quantitative and computational skills to find investment opportunities, execute on those opportunities and evaluate investment risks. They are using exciting new data science tools such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate financial processes and optimize investment results.

We are seeking students with strong mathematics, statistics and computer programming skills who are also interested in the financial industry. Successful MSCF graduates have come from a number of majors including STEM, economics, finance and business.
