MFM Class of 2014
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The program has a unique combination of professors and adjunct instructors who are prominent practitioners in the Twin Cities. We covered theoretical models and practical applications that are helping me now as a quantitative analyst. The small class size allows for the highest interactions among students and professors so you get the tight knit group at a-large university.
