Polished and Comprehensive Quant Skills

I wrote my master's thesis on a quant topic and worked in the finance industry for a few years. Neither gave me the exposure to the broad range of asset classes I have gained in my Berkeley MFE studies. My quant skills are now polished and much more comprehensive.

The faculty focuses on teaching you how to Question the Status Quo, which is an integral part of how I learn. Working with students from various parts of the globe has made the experience even more enriching.

Being taught by practitioners adds a real-world point-of-view. They can give us insights into the markets and share their experiences of how the theories play out in practice.
