MFM Class of 2014
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The MFM program at the University of Minnesota has a unique combination of prestigious tenured professors and adjunct instructors who are prominent industry practitioners in the Twin Cities. We learn both theoretical models and practical applications. The small class size allows for the highest interactions among students, their peers and professors. It is like being at a smaller institution with the benefits of a large land grant university. The curriculum is pretty fast-paced and challenging and the selectivity and competitiveness of the incoming class is very high.
