The Berkeley MFE Program is a professional degree program with a curriculum intended to prepare you to work as a financial engineer immediately after graduating. Anchored in the latest theories and best practices in quantitative finance, MFE courses are designed exclusively for MFE students, and are seamlessly integrated with one another.
The MFE requires only one year of study, which makes it attractive to students with strong quantitative skills and focused career interests. Because of the school's reputation and close ties to the best firms, Haas has an exceptional record of helping students secure internships, consistently placing nearly 100 percent of students each year. The program requirements include:
Weekly Financial Practice Seminars feature a diverse slate of finance practitioners with real-world industry experience. In the first term, speakers discuss jobs available to graduates of the MFE and the skills needed to contribute to a firm's mission. In the second term, speakers provide insights into the way the financial world is changing: new products and needs; evolving data and information systems; and similar topics.
