Options Primer Online Certificate Students' intro thread


Baruch MFE Faculty
Hello everyone,

You may call me Marvin. I have a background in math and stat, and is pursuing a career in quantitative finance. Now I am in my gap year after graduating from University and might choose to pursue a Master's degree in Financial Engineering. The most attractive aspect of this course is its emphasize on quant job interviews. Also, I really think 'intuition' (as mentioned in the course name) is the key to master a concept and use it freely.

Hope we could share a great learning experience :)
Hi, Marvin,

welcome! Enjoy our course!

My name is Omar Twahir. I am recent graduate of math and economics from Florida International University and will be applying to quant masters programs in fall 2020 and this course would help a lot. I also wanted to take this class to get a great understanding on options from experts on the field, just like I did with the C++ courses here on quantnet.

Hello Rados, Everyone

My name is Saran Reddy. I am from Mumbai, India. I will be starting MS in Quantitative and Computational Finance in August 2020. I have an experience of over 3 years in Finance, but not in Quant. I am taking this course together with the C++ for Financial Engineering course so that I can refresh and strengthen my knowledge.

Looking forward to learn more.
