"I knew that the MFM curriculum at Minnesota would best prepare me for a career in any area of quantitative finance. I could tell the program leaders truly cared and believed in the program and its students. I heard about the program after the MFM application deadline but wanted to start studying financial mathematics as soon as possible. So I began with the FQF, which had a later deadline. This gave me good preparation for the FM 5011-5012 high level mathematics and statistics course in the MFM. I love what I do at RBC and the MFM made all the difference!"
