COMPARE Stevens' MFE or Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's QFRA


New Member
I have got acceptances from Stevens Institute of Technology's Master of Financial Engineering and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's MS in Quantitative Finance and Risk Analytics. I have received a generous fellowship from Stevens but no financial support from Rensselaer.
Which school is better to pursue a career as a quant?
Which school has better job prospects and strong name recognition?

Background: I am a computer science graduate with work experience in data analytics and algorithmic trading.

Just looking at the Quantnet Ranking, I believe Stevens looks a bit better.... Better placement, tuition, and class size.
Even I got admit from Stevens with scholarship ..seems like does have an edge over rensselaer purely because of the location..and even the rankings ofc.
Do get in touch if you hve plns of joining Stevens
