Stonewain Inc, Berkekey Heights, NJ
MFM Class of 2012

Attending the University of Minnesota’s MFM program helped me make a transition from Physics to the quant field. The coursework helped me get the solid theoretical foundation and practical applications I needed to make the switch. During my time in Minnesota I met a lot of great people in the field – both local quants and visiting distinguished lecturers who are invited to participate in the program. I also got a lot of help with job hunting from our dedicated career development advisor. She just stayed focused on my situation with me until I recently landed a quant developer job at Stonewain Systems Inc, a provider of software solutions for the securities finance industry in New Jersey.
