The program takes full advantage of the colleges of Mathematics, Engineering and Finance by immersing the students within each campus amongst a plethora ot other type of students. Engineering courses make use of optimization methods and techniques, while the Finance Courses Primary focus is on Bonds, MBS, Futures, Hedging, Risk while the mathematics courses provide the momentum to propel the students in the quantum approach.

In addition, the program layers a deep level of practical experience for the student by providing access to a varied landscape of projects, corporate sponsors, internship programs, MFE alum.

Corporate Projects: The program is now embedded amongst several sponsoring companies in various fields of interests (Asset management, Data Analytics, Blockchain, Alternative Trading Signals …) via academic and real-life projects. All the projects benefit from the insights of corporate executives. Student meets periodically with those sponsors and amongst themselves as a team. Students have the opportunities to include those projects with their 2-semester capstone projects but have the ability to continue on projects beyond the capstone.

Capstone Project, Professional Development, Networking, Internship Program

The yearlong Capstone Projects expose students to concepts such NLP, Neural Networks, DeFI, Multi Factor Models, Trading Algorithms.

Joined the program one year ago and everything is perfectly so far. The program provides various courses for students with specific interest on data , quant or finance.
I joined the program fall 22. It’s been almost a month now. Two things stand out to me from this program so far. Number 1 is the networking opportunities. The program can connect you with people related to your interest pretty quickly and they are very helpful. Number 2 is the projects. They are great opportunities for you to put what you are learning in class to action.
I'm a current student of the MFE program and I must say it's gone beyond all expectations. The tailored approach of the curriculum and active engagement of industry experts on projects gives the practical perspective required. In addition, the program team consistently ensure we get a lot out of updated industry resources and networking events.
Be ready to grasp cutting edge technological skills with rigorous mathematical models delivered by outstanding Professors.

A huge value for your buck!
Lehigh MFE provides a great combination of rigorous coursework and practical real-world experience. You learn the mathematical and computational methods underpinning financial concepts and products, and then you apply them to relevant and state-of-the-art projects that are similar to those that professionals are working on in their respective industries and sectors today.
Lehigh MFE program is really helping me in both academic side and industrial side, I was inspired by the passion that the instructors showed during these years and I really enjoy the atmosphere in Lehigh Community.
I am a current MFE student at Lehigh graduating in May 2023. This program is amazing, the curriculum fused finance, math, and industrial engineering altogether and truly prepares candidates for the future. The program also has 15+ ongoing projects partnering with real companies. Lehigh MFE not only provides a great curriculum but also fantastic resources for job search, networking, and how to present yourself like a quant. As an international student in the competitive job field, I would say the manager, career coach, and all professors have my back and I am well prepared.
I am a current MFE student at Lehigh, set to graduate in the winter of 2021. This program is fantastic, because on top of the curriculum fusing together finance, math, and engineering, there is a clear goal to prepare us for the future. The program includes working on real-life projects by partnering with companies, which prepares us for life after college, and also gives us the opportunity to build our network and potentially earn a job. On top of that, every week we get the opportunity to meet with former students of the program, where we learn about their path to where they are now. There is a clear goal from the administration to help us students not only get a job out of college, but the right job for each of us. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in a quantitative finance profession.
I am a current student in the MFE program graduating in May 2021. Although I have not been in the program for long, I already know that it was a great decision to join the program and pursue a Master's degree in Financial Engineering at Lehigh. Some of the best aspects of the program are the emphasis on real world projects in addition to the many networking opportunities. There is a strong alumni network, and there are weekly calls with alumni as they provide invaluable advice on how to make the most of the program. I definitely feel that there are many opportunities that will help forward my career. In addition, the coursework of the program provides a great blend of math, finance, and engineering classes, and there is a lot of support to develop the technical skills that are in high demand. Overall, I know the program will help me achieve my professional goals, and I highly recommend it to any prospective student.
I am currently in the Lehigh MSFE program and will be graduating in May 2021. This program will give you an extremely diverse skill set as it dives deep into areas of Finance, Math and Engineering. Courtesy of Prof. Zoro, the program also has strong emphasis on networking and project work. Each one of us within the program are able to work with companies and sponsors on a project that has real world applicability which not only helps you improve your technical skills but perfectly mimics a job like environment. I would recommend this prestigious program to any motivated individuals looking to get into the quant industry. The experiences you will have are truly priceless.
I graduated in 2019 and got my first job in consulting industry with this degree and the skills I gained from this program. I would say it's the program which equips you with knowledge in math, finance as well as computer science which is imperative currently in many industries. Prof. Zoro is a really helpful guy. He's got over 20 year of practical experience in financial industry and now is the professor of practice. He's got tons of connections which will really benefit students in networking and improving professionalism. As I know, many of the graduates got their places in Wall Street and many other related fields.
