MSCF Program Ranked Among Best Financial Engineering Programs in Country

By Ben Panko

The Master of Science in Computational Finance (MSCF) program at Carnegie Mellon University was awarded the #2 position in the 2021 QuantNet rankings of financial engineering programs.

QuantNet’s methodology includes a survey of hiring managers and academic peers. This year, 23 master’s programs in North America were surveyed on admissions, placement and career services information. The rankings were based on a weighted average of peer assessment, placement success and student selectivity.

“We are committed to providing the highest quality of education to our students,” said Rick Bryant, executive director of the MSCF program. “We work closely with employers to equip our students with the skillsets needed to excel in the industry. We are constantly adapting the curriculum to ensure their success.”
