MSCF Continues to be Recognized as a Leader in Quantitative Finance

The Master of Science in Computational Finance (MSCF) program has been ranked as a top quantitative finance program over the past two decades. Our high scores for student selectivity, peer assessment, employment rates and starting salaries is a testament to our continued success in adapting to the changing needs of the market.

It’s important to note that no common standards exist among graduate quantitative finance programs for reporting admissions or employment outcomes. With respect to job and salary data (generally the most heavily weighted metrics of the rankings), MSCF follows the strict standards set forth by the MBA Career Services & Employer Alliance. Please see our FAQ page for more information on how our employment statistics are calculated, factors that can influence these metrics, and the lack of comparability regarding this data between the quantitative finance programs.
