UCLA Anderson MFE students are ready to hit the ground running with your organization having benefited from a rigorous educational experience that blends mathematical and statistical modelling skills, computational expertise, and finance theory. 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, economics, computer science, and business administration. Our graduates pursue careers ranging from risk management, asset management, derivatives trading, corporate finance and data analytics.
Full time positions: We are proud to showcase the UCLA Anderson MFE Class of 2014 for full-time employment opportunities. Our class of 43 students was selected from an extremely competitive group of 470 applicants and brings a diverse mix of professional and academic backgrounds along with an impressive quantitative skill set.
Internships: Our program requires all of our students to complete a summer internship related to financial engineering. Students are available for internships beginning mid-June through mid-September. The class will have completed two-thirds of their coursework by the time they start their internships. Internships may be in, but not limited to, model construction, quantitative research, asset management and risk analysis issues.
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".
