MIT MFin Mathematics Background Requirements


New Member
I'm interested in applying to MIT's MFin program next year. My concern is that my mathematical background is not that strong.

I'm an Economics undergraduate and have only completed what I consider the most basic of Calculus (Differentiation, Integration but not that much Series - No differential equations at all), Linear Algebra (Basic Matrix Operations, Gauss Elimination etc. but not Vector Spaces, Eigenvalues etc.), Statistics/Probability/Econometrics (Descriptive Statistics, Inferential Statistics, Linear Regressions & Estimations etc. but nothing Stochastic, or calculus-based).

The truth is that I consider myself inclined towards mathematics and capable of learning new concepts. My question would be whether I will adequately learn the mathematical concepts that are needed, during the math preparation modules of the program, or I will be more or less expected to already know such concepts beforehand.

Any input from former/current students of the program would be very appreciated.
