Taking courses like advanced calculus, mathematical statistics, functional analysis (advanced analysis), PDE, ODE (2nd and 3rd year), computational linear algebra, numerical methods, basic stochastic processes courses will make like easier if you tackle MFE. Of course, C++ is a must in this case (self-learning).
If you go straight to the MFE program will kill you on the spot if your maths background is not sufficient. I have a friend did the University of Sydney, Technology program two years ago. He mentioned that he struggled through the program and learned very minimum because of his maths background.
If you aim for Quant Finance, do it right is very important.
Now I need to search some Unis that will accept me in for the postgraduate diploma applied maths.
I tried to enroll for Auckland University and the Science department said I will need to spend a semester doing 4 prerequisites first then the postgrad dip applied maths. so thats gona be like 1.5 years.
Thanks for the reply Marko
Andy, I know that you graduated from Baruch. I also have been reading the chats with Dr. Stefan and I have developed an interest for the Baruch program.
What did you do to get in? were you in a situation like me.
Are there or were there anyone in my situation lol
That is what I am trying to do. Everything I want to do now is for getting into MFE. I have enrolled for postgrad diploma in applied maths and I am trying to figure out the exact papers that I would need in relation to MFE.
Any subjects u guys suggest? I know I need algebra n calculus and PDE and numerical computing right?
