Hi all, I am a finance student from China.

Objective: Learn C++ for MFE programs

Programming Exp.: C, Python and MATLAB

Current Work: Final year Financial Mathematics student and a part-time quantitative researcher intern.

Intended pace: Wish to complete the course before October.
 
Hello QuantNet Community! I am an undergraduate student at Imperial College London majoring in theoretical physics. I choose to take this course to strengthen my knowledge base in computing and discover its applications in financial markets. I also aspire to apply for Baruch MFE, and I believe this course could provide me with great exposure to the program.
 
Hey Everyone,

I'm currently a portfolio advisor and financial planner working for a large Registered Investment Advisor. Two years into this career and I'm hoping to develop more quantitative skills and pivot to institutional money management. I finished the first two levels of this course and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Background: 2 years of professional experience, undergraduate degree in Econometric Statistics and Financial Economics from UVA.

Programming experience: MATLAB (rusty), R (very rusty).

Intended pace: before the deadline :0
 
Hello everyone! I am a recent graduate from the University of Warwick in an integrated master's degree in mathematics and statistics. My aim from this course is to learn C++ in order to apply methodologies I have learnt in my degree and translate these ideas into code - in particular, some practical applications of the quantitative finance modules I had learnt in my fourth year. I intend to enhance my coding skills in C++ and python throughout the year as I apply for PhD programs with the intention of starting in autumn of 2022.

Welcome.
BTW did you have any exposure to C++ at Warwick?

There is a programming for quantitative finance course in C++ that is offered exclusively for the MSc mathematical finance students but sadly not to any other integrated masters students in the mathematics or statistics department. I have only been exposed to the programming language R in some depth and some Python too so I hope to get a lot from this course in learning C++ 🙂!

I'm sure you will learn a lot here.
Actually, I taught C++ to WBS finance students in 2019/early 2020.
Good luck.

R (and Matlab!) is too simplistic for maths people. It is more of a tool for MBA. C++ and maths are a more natural mix.

Interesting, had no idea you’d taught those courses!

Also, I agree I can already start to see the differences in difficulty from the week 1 materials!
 
Hello you all,
I am really excited to be here and start a C++ journey to further my academic and career path.
Objective: Learn C++ for the Baruch MFE Program, learn its application in systematic trading, and learn from people with diverse backgrounds!
Programming Experience: Basic python and VBA
Current Work: Senior Finance student at Tulane University and interned at a hedge fund this summer
Intended Pace: before 2022.
