The recent explosive growth in quantitative finance has led mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering students of all levels to wonder whether a career or an advanced degree in quantitative finance is right for them. With the rapid increase in sophisticated quantitative and computational techniques employed in financial firms there has been increasing demand for students with highly quantitative backgrounds to work in the financial field and an increase in advanced degree programs covering these topics.

This forum is designed to give a personal view of the world of quantitative finance from the point of view of quantitative finance professionals with varying specialties. Without formulas or Microsoft Power Point, our panelists will share their own experiences and engage in a moderated discussion with plenty of time to answer student questions. A reception for students and panelists will be held after the event.

Sponsored and Hosted by:
Interdisciplinary Professional Programs, University of Michigan
