"The Berkeley MFE is ideal for turning a strong quantitative background into a quantitative finance skill set applicable in the most challenging and exciting parts of the industry. No large job can get covered by just one person; knowing how to work in teams is important. In the financial industry, projects are getting larger and encompass more specialties: trading, sales, risk management. By working with other students in our team projects, we built necessary teamwork skills that are vital in the workforce."
