Fundamentals of Quantitative Finance (FQF) Post-Baccalaureate Certificate

  • 2018 FM Orientation

Fundamentals of Quantitative Finance (FQF) is a two semester post-baccalaureate graduate certificate. It can be a gateway into the MFM program by providing a refresher on key mathematical concepts crucial to understanding the more advanced mathematical coursework in the MFM.  It also includes the yearlong sequence, "Computation, Algorithms, and Coding in Finance" which all MFM students take.  FQF students enter the program at the same time as MFM students, receive the same career development support and can engage in all the graduate financial mathematics student activities. 

Credit Transfer from FQF to MFM

In the last semester of the FQF you can apply to the MFM. If you are accepted, eight of your fourteen FQF credits will transfer to your MFM degree.  If you are a full time student you can potentially finish the MFM in another academic year along with the MFM students from your incoming class.

Tutition for the FQF is the same as the per credit rate specified for the MFM Program.
