Hello everyone,

I am currently a Senior at Manhattan College studying Finance and Economics. I am taking this class to strengthen my programming skills so that I can apply to graduate schools and pursue a Master's in Financial Engineering. I feel that QuantNet's C++ programming course will give me the best opportunity to prepare well for applying and interviewing for MFE programs.

Happy holidays and what a wonderful time to start a new program!

Objective: Learn C++ in Financial Engineering context. I want to transition into quantitative space with 100% commitments.

Programming experience: SQL, VBA, Python (through pre-MFE program), Java, C (through online education program)

Current work:
9 years professional experience in asset management. Non-quantitative components.

Intended pace of program: Accelerated between now and new year, 4 hrs during workdays and 6-8 hrs during non-workdays. Depends on how much can be done and will have to slow down as work builds-up after year-end. Will adjust my schedule accordingly.

Hi everyone, looking forward to this course and working with all of you.

Objective: Learn C++ to help my applications to MFE / quantitative finance masters programs (applications are in for admission in Fall 2020)

Programming experience: None at all but hoping to change that with this course...

Current work: Worked as an investment banker at a large bank for the last two years after getting my MBA. Left my job recently to focus on applying to MFE / quant finance programs to transition from I-banking to a more quant / asset management-type role.

Intended pace: Plan to finish the course before the end of January 2020. I start two in-person math courses at Baruch's Pre-MFE Program in late January, so I hope to have this completed by then so I can focus on those.
