It's a tough program that makes you work hard and instills in you the critical skills required for a variety of related quant jobs. I use those basic skills all the time as an Interest Rate Derivatives Consultant at Murex North America. The MFM at the U of MN begins with the basics of Financial Mathematics and by the end of the program, you are able to implement complex models. It's exciting to hear and learn from practitioner adjunct professors who talk about real-world challenges they have on-the-job. I am indebted to the MFM program at the University of Minnesota for all the knowledge and common sense on math finance that I gained there through my teachers and classmates alike.
