Any info that will be made publicly available has already been made publicly available when we released the ranking.
Many MFE students have degrees in liberal arts but the majority got a degree in quantitative majors. As long as you have all the requirements and can make a strong case as why you want to do this degree, apply.I have a question! is this progam only from students who have a specific type of bachelor background/? like only for business/engineering students or any one can apply for it??
now let us discuss something about the tuition and fees.
I may not have to take a loan for my MFE study.
But what if one person has to borrow 70K to fully fund his MFE study?
He will pay it back by doing the 4 month internship( 28K), by doing RA or TA (15K, but not sure if this kind of opportunities exist in Columbia,Princeton, Berkeley, MIT)... then will he be able to pay his loan back after working full time for one year?
I'm not sure where in the ranking methodology did you see the tuition is taken into account? It's there on the ranking table because people keep asking about that info.1) Baruch is overestimated. You enumerated tuitions and at the same time you factored them into ranking calculation as well. That causes readers think Baruch has higher rank plus lower tuition. It's a double count. You should lip off the tuition ether from the ranking table or from the ranking calculation.
2) In addition to that, compared to salary which is paid every year for many years, tuition is only once. And the diff is about $30k (assuming the average of MFE is $60k), so it's not significantly big difference and some people wouldn't consider such a small diff ( and I know there are many full-time students who just rely on their parents about the tuition. ) Not surprisingly, some rich people are proud of sending their kids to very expensive school!
3) I believe you are biased because Baruch sponsored to this website.
IMHO, one who received offers from Columbia MF, NYU, MIT and Baruch most unlikely chooses Baruch if they have enough money not to consider the diff. So to be fair, you should separate the tuitions from the ranking evaluation but just display the next to it. Unlike quality of program or job placement, tuition is already an objective number and no need to quantify it into ranking.
as I know there are some if you have a US co-signer, something like that ... but this does not matter anyway because he can borrow in his own country if he wishes...
because the major part of the Total cost is the tuition which is shown as the tuition for the whole program rather than a year. So the cost does increase but does not double.
I don't plan to take a loan . Just out of curiosity, for people who plan to do that, will they be able to pay it back as soon as possible?
