  • Hi Andy,
    Pls help with your kind advice.
    My Qualification: B.Tech + MBA + CFA + FRM
    Positive: Strong finance knowledge Negative: Average in C++ programming and mathematics.
    Total work ex.: 7 yrs (C++ programming + business analyst + equity research)
    How easy/difficult will be MFE program. Will my average programming skill be a big negative.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Santanu
    Hello Andy.I have sent you an inbox concerning Financial Engineering.Kindly revert back with you advise.Thanks
    Hello, Andy. I really need some professional advice from you. I am going to the college as undergrad next year and not sure which major best prepares me for being a quant? I know it requires tons of math and programming skills. I am just wondering if applied math+Computer science would be a good option? Thank you in advance.
    Hi Andy
    I have got admits from Rutgers MQF program and NYU-Poly. Please suggest me which one do you find better?
    I could not find the ranking of NYU-Poly. However it has better location. On the other hand, Rutgers has good ranking but is pretty expensive.
    Please suggest me amongst these. Thanks
    Hey Andy,
    Can u please suggest me whether I should do MFE from UMICH as I hav got an admit from them or should I wait for a year and apply again......
    your suggestion would be highly appreciated
    Thanx...
    hi andy,
    i hav admits from CGU(MSFE) and IIT,Chicago(m.s Finance). can u suggest me for which univ i shud go for..im really confused.
    Andy, I've been admitted to the NYU-Poly MSFE program. Heard that several former Poly students reapplied for several TOP MFE programs during their first year there, and some of them succeeded. What's your take on reapplying? Do I stand a chance if I finish the first semester courses in Poly? Any advices or suggestions?

    Unless you get 4.0 GPA in the first semester and get glowing recommendations, the fact that you didn't get in TOP program the last time is always something on their mind. And not to mention you will waste time and money restudying most of the materials. Take this into account and plan a good path.
    Hi Andy, could you please add USC MS Financial Engineering and USC MS Mathematical Finance to the tracker? Thank you!

    dearallan, please go ahead and add your timelines. thanks
    Hi Andy, I am struggling between Cornell and CMU right now. My future plan (at least for now) is to work as a trader for 2 or 3 years after graduate from the program, and then apply a finance phd or go for some VC/PE job. I am looking for a program that can best fit in with my career plan. So do you have any advice for me? thanks!!!

    Do you have any relevant finance work experience in the US? If not, it's close to impossible to become trader right off school. Best scenario would be to obtain a FO role on a trading desk and work your way up the ladder.

    i see...thanks for replying!
    Could you please Include UZurich-ETH : MS in Quant Fin course as well under the Tracker.
    Hi, Andy, just a notice or fresh information for quantnet tracker. Oklahoma State University has a Master of Quantitative Financial Economics including three tracks: Financial Engineering, CFA and FRM. Maybe you can add the program in the application tracker.
    By the way, I spent 20 days in Vietnam last winter, especially in HCMC, Hanoi, Dalat, Nhatrang. I love those places!

    Yeah, great seafood. Still I can remember every detail that I ate seafood in Dalat with Pacific Ocean nearby
    Em tính học SQL, SAS và sharepoint. Nhưng em đọc ở trong diễn đàn này thì mọi người nói học C++ sẽ tốt hơn. Tại vì em không đi theo ngành programmer system nên em không hiểu học C++ để làm gì. Theo anh thì nên học ngôn ngữ nào là tốt nhất cho quant. em thì hiện đang tự học SQL rồi sau đó sẽ học tiếp đến sas và sharepoint.
    Cảm ơn anh.

    thank you very much for your time and a quick reply. I am working on SQL when i done with it, i will try C++. However can you clarify among financial analyst, Quantitative analyst, mathematical finance and financial engineering. Are they the same or at least they will meet each others at some point. can one become a Quant by follow either of them?

    thank for very much. can't believe that such a busy guy like you have time to answer my questions that fast :). then i won't bother you no more. Thank again. i really appreciate your help.
    Hi chào anh.
    Em đang học năm cuối của high school. hiện em đã hoàn tất calculus 3 vì vậy em sẽ không phải học bất kỳ môn toán nào trong 2 năm đầu ở university. Trong thời gian này em đang suy nghĩ nên học một ngôn ngữ lập trình nào. Em nhắm đi theo con đường quantitative analyst chứ không phải programmer.
    Hi andy, Can u tell me by when can we expect the new ranking
    Andy Nguyen
    Andy Nguyen
    These processes take months to complete so we hope to get it as soon as possible. We will try to release them earlier than our 2009 ranking

    I hope the model is not designed in such a way that baruch lands up in top 3 programs...Its just a personal opinion...I have talked to few of my relatives who are ibankers the seem to have the opinion that baruch is over-rated in quantnet ranking..

    Why would you believe that we design a model to put any program in a top 3? That is beyond false.
    hey andy, i'm a hedge fund professional in nyc and am thinking about doing a part-time MFE in NYC. i would love to pick your brain about part time programs in NYC and how best to prepare for them.
    Hi Andy, whats ur take on Gatech QCF Vs Rutgers MQF?? Kindly provide me with ur valuable feedback cuz ive to make a decision this week n im super confused!
    Hey Andy, is there's a reason why you don't have a dedicated forum for Stanford MSFM? I know it's a bit late considering the decisions are already out, but I was wondering why the omission?
