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 combining mathematical and statistical tools with finance theory, we equip our students with the tools necessary to succeed as "quants."
A Diverse Range of Skills and Backgrounds
Our students have an average of two years of professional experience prior to starting the MFE program and come from a diverse range of academic backgrounds, including engineering, finance/economics, mathematics, computer science and business administration. Once they attain the practical and theoretical tools through the MFE program, our graduates are ready to hit the ground running in areas including risk management, asset management, derivatives trading, corporate finance, data science and analytics, and FinTech.
The MFE program hosts a variety of recruitment events throughout the year, including our annual New York Wall Street Orientation Trip and San Francisco Orientation Trip, during which select companies give presentations and hold networking events. In addition, we host a Quant Industry Open House on campus, which provides companies the opportunity to showcase openings and to have a dialogue with graduate students from nationally recognized programs in mathematics, economics and financial engineering.
