MFM courses are offered in the evenings to accommodate working
professionals who are part-time students and to give full time students
to obtain internships and industry specific projects. For a full-time
student with a good undergraduate background in mathematics it is
possible to graduate in one-year.

EverBank - Jacksonville FL MFM Class of 2012
One of the main reasons I chose the MFM program at the University of Minnesota was that many of the MFM faculty are not only Math PhDs, they are also practicing quants, risk managers and traders. The curriculum gave me a strong foundation in the theoretical math required to get a deep understanding in the math finance applications taught later on in the program.
