Support MSCF and be a Part of the MSCF Legacy at CMU

Carnegie Mellon’s interdisciplinary Master of Science in Computational Finance degree was the first of its kind in the world. Led by twenty-one full-time, tenure-track faculty with specialties in statistics, math, computer science and finance, MSCF’s top-ranked, interdisciplinary education has prepared students for highly successful careers in quantitative finance for nearly 30 years.

Our Students

MSCF matriculates 95 students between its Pittsburgh and New York City locations each year. Coming from top schools with solid quantitative and computational backgrounds, our students receive rigorous training in the math, statistics and computation skillsets that underlie today’s financial markets. Carnegie Mellon enjoys a strong reputation for producing smart, well-trained and highly-motivated graduates who bring remarkable problem-solving capabilities to the finance industry. Recruiter demand is strong: typically, 95% of our graduates accept a position within three months of graduation.

Our Opportunity

The first to offer a master’s degree in quantitative finance, Carnegie Mellon’s MSCF program is a joint venture between the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Department of Statistics & Data Science, the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, and the Tepper School of Business. MSCF offers students unique opportunities that they cannot receive elsewhere — education with a lens from four disciplines, an extraordinary curriculum and exceptional access to full-time faculty. Students engage a network of over 1,900 alumni offering support through mock interviews, experiential panels and various presentations. Yet as more graduate finance programs emerge around the country — programs with more institutional funding to attract students and faculty and engage in research — there is a need to further strengthen Carnegie Mellon’s MSCF degree, support faculty research in unprecedented ways and unlock new possibilities for the program.
