It's the whole package you bring to the table, and not just a Masters in QF.I do not have a Masters. I currently work in Asia. Thus, I am considering SMU MQF as a qualification upgrade for me.
From the content of this thread, am I right to conclude the following:
1) I shouldn't expect a $7k+ job from a top tier hedge fund after graduating from this course?
2) I shouldn't expect to gain a programming skill set that'll make me a successful applicant to companies like KCG, Jump and Tower Research
Hi All, I got the offer as well and start to prepare.Hey Hari, hope you have accepted the offer! Are you coming from a finance background? I have been searching ard for people who are entering the MQF program - at least to know fellow students before sch starts.
Hi there, I'm in the course now, local track. For prep class, it will be very mathematical in nature. Lots of stuff on probability & statistics (e.g. Moment-generating function). It can be a little complex for people with zero math /stat background as the lecturer will speed through prep & the actual classes.Hi All, I got the offer as well and start to prepare.
I am from corp. finance background (zero exposure to finance market & risk mgmt)
anyone made a group already for '17/'18 batch, i am wondering what is the content/outline for prep class
hi Joel,Hi all, I'm in the 2018-2019 batch for International track. We can get a group going if there's sufficient numbers here.
I was sent the acceptance letter this morning.
I asked to be included in the LinkedIn group, but we can start a group in fb.
