The MFE is an intensive and challenging program that picks up pace quite early on. We’d strongly recommend that students start investing some of their time, between now and Fall, towards preparing for the program.

The coursework is very hands-on and requires programming in multiple languages. Below, we’ve put together a list of some resources that we think might help students (especially those with limited programming background, or those that need math refreshers) develop working level familiarity with some of these tools (staple for any FE).
