Recruit an MFE


With strong quantitative skills in place, Anderson MFEs hit the ground running

A Rigorous and Well-Balanced Curriculum

Our talented MFE students learn from our top-rated finance faculty to integrate mathematical, statistical, and computer programming tools with finance theory application. Unlike many MFE programs, the UCLA Anderson MFE curriculum is solidly based on the business school paradigm of merging theory and principle with up-to-the-minute business practice. By merging mathematical and statistical tools with finance theory, we equip our students with the tools necessary to succeed as "quants".

A Diverse Range of Skills & Backgrounds

Our students have an average of 2 years professional experience prior to starting the MFE and come from a diverse range of academic backgrounds including engineering, finance/economics, mathematics, computer science, and business administration. Once paired with the practical and theoretical tools gained during the MFE program, our graduates are ready to hit the ground running in careers ranging from risk management, asset management, derivatives trading, corporate finance and data analytics.
