"I took a few courses in the MBA program at Tel Aviv University, and soon realized that I was most interested in the finance-related courses. I started looking for a program with a more quantitative approach to finance. The Haas MFE gives me that. The program is very practical and it's obvious how applicable my Haas courses will be in the workplace.

"The faculty designs their courses with the real world in mind. Most of them are, or have been, practitioners. They teach the fundamentals and give us on-the-ground insights into today's turbulent marketplace. For example, Professor Tavella's course in Derivatives: Quantitative Methods is sure to be relevant to the valuations I'll be doing as an intern in the financial engineering department at Duff & Phelps."
