MSCF Employment Statistics

We maintain a robust database of companies whose offers were accepted by our students, the positions our students have taken and the location of these positions. The data for employment and internships is published in a yearly employment report

There is no common standard for reporting placement information among professional financial engineering master’s programs and the reports of such programs are not audited. MSCF follows the conservative standards set by the MBA Career Services & Employer Alliance for Specialty Masters programs wherein promised or expected bonuses may not be included in starting salaries and strict rules dictate when jobs must be obtained in order to be included in the placement percentage.

As of November 16th, 2020, 52 of 83 students (63%) MSCF students graduating in December 2020 have received offers; 45 of 83 students (54%) have accepted offers.
