Im currently doing a Phd in financial mathematics, and have considered doing a MFE afterwards. I have some questions
1. would the MFE be a bit of an overkill as Im doing my Phd in financial mathematics?
2. I'll be 34 when I finch my Phd, would the extra year or year and half for the MFE start making my age become a factor for job opportunities?
3. Im only at a top 15 Uni in the UK, would I have any chance at getting into a MFE in New York? I have already had a paper submitted and accepted if that would help?
The reason I have considered an MFE is that the Phd is very niche, and I would like to get a more rounded education in fin maths.
Thanks for any replys
