Baruch MFE Baruch pre-MFE program Q&A (ask previous students)

1. Is it possible to take all three seminars at the same time? Schedule wise. I'm international, so I need to figure out if it would be possible to do it while visiting.
2. How long would it take to complete all three seminars if its possible to take them at the same time?
It is possible to take all three Pre-MFE seminars in February and March if you do not work full-time. You would complete them in two months.
3. I consider the tuition pricey (when all of them are added up), is there any scholarship or is it possible to make them consider this courses when applying for scholarship for the MFE?
There is no financial support for the Pre-MFE seminars.
4. Is the C++ course really necessary? (Like, should I avoid spending that money)
5. I noticed that very few people took the Python course, is it not really necessary for my development in the MFE? (Like, should I avoid spending that money)
Knowledge of C++ (one semester or certificate) is a pre-requisite for admission. Taking the Pre-MFE seminars or the online certificates is not required for admission to the Baruch MFE Program if you satisfy the requirements already. You could also take other courses in order to satisfy the admission requirements. However, the seminars from the Pre-MFE Program are specifically designed to prepare students for financial engineering graduate studies and emphasize financial applications.

Hi, I am also interested in applying to Baruch MFE for 2020. I had a few questions about applying to the Pre-MFE. I wanted to take all 3 classes in the spring.

1) How is the final exams structured for the Pre-MFE courses?

2) Is the books included in the cost of the course or would I be responsible for it separately?

3) Is there a particular format that my resume should be in when I apply to the Pre-MFE?

AC-FE and NLA exams are open book, open notes; for the programming exam, bring your own code and code during the exam.
