Our Chapter Volunteers work within their region to connect alumni, parents, students and friends of MSCF through various types of events and gatherings.

MSCF Mentor Program

We have developed the MSCF Mentor Program which uses mentoring-specific software to facilitate one-on-one connections between alumni and students. The program allows alumni to determine their own frequency and form of communication. To learn more about becoming an Alumni Mentor, please visit the MSCF Mentor Program page and sign up today.

The MSCF Alumni Board was created in 2016 to assist the MSCF program in offering more valuable resources for our alumni, to strengthen MSCF alumni ties, to provide insights into the needs of the industry, and to better communicate the needs of the program. 

Alumni Board members serve a three-year term. The Board meets once in the Fall in New York with the MSCF Steering Committee and MSCF Alumni Relations staff and once with the MSCF Alumni Relations staff in the Spring.

You would have had to have graduated in the very early days of the MSCF program not to be familiar with the MSCF Speaker Series! Practitioner talks that take place on Friday’s in the fall, the primary purpose in hosting these talks is to expose our students, many of whom do not have a finance background, to the different products, markets, and careers to be had in "quantitative finance.” Many of you have now been working in the industry for many years. You know a lot. Why not share your wisdom and insights with the new kids?

The topic of your presentation would be for you to decide but would, hopefully, encompass your areas of expertise, perhaps with some examples of projects you are working on or what you see as "the road ahead" for our students about to move into these jobs. These talks also present an opportunity for you to "sell" you company as well as provide you with an early, first-hand “look” at our students for possible entry-level openings at your firm! Interested in participating? Call call Robert Simon at (412) 268-4592 or

Did you do or are you doing something that you think would make a great story? Let us know by sending us an email. We'll follow up. Perhaps all will see it in the next MSCF Alumni Newsletter!
