"My classmates were incredibly diverse in their backgrounds, but we were homogeneous in our goals for the future. When we worked together on projects, a classmate with a PhD in physics could have helped me with the math, and I could have helped him with the market intuitions and lessons I learned working as a trader."

"I can't tell you how much I learned in my courses, from my professors and my classmates — and I came to the program with practical, trading floor experiences. I gained confidence in myself and my understanding of the industry. I can hold my own in a conversation with seasoned professionals."
