Academics

We calibrate every aspect of the one-year Berkeley MFE Program to lead to your career destination. Your classroom instruction delivers the financial engineering knowledge and best practices you will put to use in the experiential learning that forms the heart of the program. That starts with a 12-week internship and continues with an applied finance project. Both of these experiences put you at the top of the queue when applying for jobs after graduation.

From faculty members who are the force behind groundbreaking financial instruments to the industry leaders who advise on the curriculum, this STEM degree program is designed to be relevant in a constantly evolving industry.

"While learning technical skills is important, the more valuable lessons you learn in the Berkeley MFE Program come from exposure to the financial industry.

The financial world isn’t pure math; you need to have market sense as well."
