"In mechanical engineering, I used my math and computational skills, but not many of my other interests in history, international relations and world trade. In financial engineering, all of my interests and skills come together."

"The MFE curriculum is challenging even for someone like me who already has a PhD in an intensely quantitative field."

"I’ve studied at many universities and I can say without exaggeration that the quality of Haas faculty is extremely high. Professors Rubinstein, Leland, and O’Brien are more than outstanding professors. They have critical experience on Wall Street. Learning from their insights is very valuable."

"Our Stochastic Calculus professor Alezei Tchistyi explained very profound math concept in the sort of layman’s language that is used in the real world of finance. Professor Mark Rubinstein explained even the most convoluted financial concepts using everyday examples. That makes the lessons memorable."

"Working so much in teams has been a challenge for me, because I have always worked alone. But I realized the power of collaboration to achieve results. I am privileged to be here among such brilliant minds. My classmates have helped me improve academically, professionally and personally."
