Fannie Mae
MFM Class of 2012

The MFM in Minnesota is the only financial mathematics program in the Upper Midwest, which means students have so many competitive opportunities here. Our Director helped me get better at the job search process which led me to an investment analyst internship at a Twin Cities foundation. That experience ultimately aided me in landing at Fannie Mae.
