Hi everyone,

Objective: I started this journey way back in 2015 but ultimately pulled out of consideration for the various MFE programs I had applied to due to some life circumstances. No matter how much time passes, I can't stop thinking about this. So I am back with a vengeance and intend to use this course as the launching point to my career in computational finance.

Programming Exp.: Java

Current Work: Strategic finance and Master of Computer Science

Intended pace: I'd like to complete the course in 10 weeks from today.
