"The group research project is paramount to the success of the MFE program – it kept us intellectually stimulated and gave everyone an opportunity to interact with investment professionals at world-leading investment management companies like BlackRock. We had biweekly meetings with BlackRock's director of the Fixed Income Group and I learned a lot of interesting industry practices. One of the best things about this program is the diversity of the student body. Everyone has different work experience, and the diversified academic backgrounds amongst the student body helps when collaborating on group projects. Students here are selfless; during our first break, two volunteered to give me a SQL tutorial, which greatly helped me during my interview."
