Boston MSMF BU MSMF Evaluation


New Member
Hello, I have been accepted to the BU MSMF program and I would like some opinions on whether this program is worth its money. (60k or so)

I have an undergraduate degree in Econ (good statistics - math - finance courses, no programming)
I am not from the US, will I have fair chances in finding a quant - finance related job in the US after graduating BU?

I know that the program has changed dramatically since 3 years ago, is there a recent graduate to provide some insight on this subject?


I spoke to a graduate of 2011 that has a similar profile to mine (mexican with BS in Applied Mathematics). She told me that she got a job offer from the company she did her internship at, but rejected the offer as she wanted to come back to Mexico.

BU MSMF Exec Dir
This is the BUMF Exec Director here. We had five students join Chicago-based prop trading firms and these firms have very low starting salaries, but give the students a percentage of PnL. Thus, salaries seem low, however compensation, with a good trading book, can be substantial.
