Options Clearing Corporation - Chicago, IL MFM Class of 2013 Nanchang, China
The MFM program has encouraged me to believe in my skills and advantages and try the best I can to put those skills to work. I have gained programming skills and more knowledge in advanced mathematics which is helpful for any quantitative field. The emphasis in statistics allowed me to explore my own interest in statistical analysis. The career workshops help me develop the many non-technical skills I need to land a job and develop my career. The weekly MFM Seminar, the annual Career Fair and other networking events provide various opportunities to stay in touch with industry professionals. One-on-one career advice with MCFAM’s dedicated career coach helped me take my first step toward building my career.
