"My favorite thing about the Berkeley MFE is its focus on building both practical experiences along with financial knowledge. From the internships to company-sponsored research opportunities, the understanding I gained goes well beyond academics. The Program Office sets up countless seminars where CEOs, COOs and others come in to talk about how quantitative skills and analysis are used in the real world. The short drive from Berkeley over to Silicon Valley, Palo Alto and San Francisco puts us in ideal position to meet some of the biggest movers and shakers in the financial sector. It's great to have that kind of exposure. No matter what your professional or educational background, if you have passion and drive, you can find a place here in the Berkeley MFE program."
