    It would be our great pleasure, if you could spare some time to answer a few questions from us.
    The questions are:
    How do you become a risk manager?
    How much time do you spend following the market on each day?
    Do you prefer complex or simple risk management measure?
    In your opinion what is the best measure of risk?
    Are risk manager respect in the eye of trader?
    Any suggestion on how to become a good risk manager?
    We are a group of 4 students from the University of Edinburgh, UK, who are interested in commodity future trading. We are currently doing MSc in Operational Research and taking financial risk management course.
    The reason why we contact you is that we just post an article on Quant Interview and Andy Nguyen recommend us to contact you. Regarding the course assignment, we need to find a risk manager for interview.
    I would like to read about risk management and its application. would you recommend me any book, just to read and get an idea?

    I might. I work 20 percent more hours there for 20-30 percent less money. I asked them for a faculty parking spot one day a week and they refused. I don't care about the money, but I do care a lot about the convenience. If they don't pony up, I won't teach. I want that parking spot.

    ooh doesn't sound so good :( I hope they change their mind and provide you with parking space. I guess convenience is a big priority for everyone. I mistook u to be a student until i saw you on the Rutgers website. whats ur opinion of the MQF program at Rutgers?
    Before i forget to introduce myself - I am Priyanka from India! Im most likely heading to Rutgers this Fall.

    The students often complained about a lack of flexibility in the program. There are many requirements and not too many electives. Overall, my biggest complaint is that many students don't have the necessary finance background. I teach a lot of remedial bond math. That said, the best of the students are as good as any I have seen (I also teach at NYU and Baruch) and my firm has hired several.
