https://www.quantnet.com/tracker/?filters[program_id]=64&page=1Hi KB, just to enquire, i recently applied to SMU MQF late march this year, and it had been a month, but still no reply. How long it took for them to reply you? Wondering whether my chances are low.
Can you share some insights or experience in the job type in Singapore after such a quantitative program? As far as I've learned, most of the jobs are closed connected to coding and programming. But I'm not a computer guru and cannot even compete with CS guys with a mere BS degree. Are there many other choices and opportunities after such a program? By other, I mean middle office risk, energy trading, structured product management, IB, consultancy, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong because there is a lot of information asymmetries involved.Hi Ken, I don't remember when they sent out the rejection letters.
Hi all,Hi guys. Anybody shipping to Singapore this year for MQF at SMU? Would like to connect.
Spoke with our school team and thought that I cleared this up. This is not quite accurate. There is an internship/contract opportunity with SGX related to HFT recently. That was extended to existing MQF students. Also, as you are aware, SGX deals with the technology side (they don't do prop trading). This position is positioned as such.SMU offers internship opputunuty with SGX for HFT before the term starts
Jobs in finance are drying up, so I would definitely broaden my search beyond finance. Quite a number of folks from SMU's MSc Applied Finance landed risk roles, although not not in bulge brackets. It's interesting that recent opportunities that I came across at SMU have been for consulting (Deloitte Consulting, Accenture etc) and risk roles in oil and gas companies.
I know I wrote only bits and pieces of information here. Hope it helps.
