MSCF Program Earns #1 Overall Ranking Among Financial Engineering Programs by QuantNet

PITTSBURGH – The Master in Computational Finance (MSCF) program at Carnegie Mellon University was awarded the top position among financial engineering programs in the 2013-14 ranking of financial engineering programs released this week by QuantNet, a leading source of information for financial engineering graduate students. The methodology of this ranking includes a survey of hiring managers, corporate recruiters and professionals from financial institutions around the world as well as statistics reflecting student selectivity for the program and graduate employment.

“Earning a second-straight top ranking reflects the dedication that our faculty, administrators and students put into this program,” said Rick Bryant, executive director of the MSCF program. “We are fortunate to be able to attract bright and highly motivated students, able to meet the demands of the increasingly quantitative and computational financial markets. Their continued success in their jobs, to a significant degree due to the preparation they received at Carnegie Mellon, continues to increase the reputation of the MSCF program.”

Carnegie Mellon University’s MSCF program is a joint academic venture between the Department of Statistics in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Heinz College, the Mathematical Sciences Department in the Mellon College of Science and the Tepper School of Business. With campuses in New York City and Pittsburgh, the program graduates approximately 80 students each year.
