Friday, March 3, 2 pm, CORC, 3rd Floor Library
Come meet Nick San Angelo, Admissions Counselor for Graduate Admissions at BU's Questrom School of Business. He assists in the interview/decision making process for all of the graduate programs (MBA, MSMS, MSMF) at the Questrom. He will be representing their two specialty Masters programs:
The 17-month, full-time, 36 credit Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF) program focuses on the crux of mathematical concepts that led to the development of the Black-Scholes option pricing method and have grown recently into a universal tool for creating effective investment strategies and risk-analysis.
A distinguishing characteristic of the MSMF is the careful integration of certain practical domains of mathematics with an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern finance. Our view of the field of mathematical finance (MF) has always been that "mathematical" modifies "finance" and that understanding the nature of the Brownian motion, however instrumental, does not amount to an understanding of finance. Therefore, this program focuses on the unique field of mathematical finance rather than treating mathematics and finance as separate entities.
The Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS) at Boston University Questrom School of Business builds a bridge to business for recent graduates with a background in areas like science, math, technology, engineering, digital communications, economics, and more. An additional year of study, the MSMS adds business expertise to your skillset so that you can go farther faster in your career. For nine months, you'll work with a collaborative team in a dedicated space to solve real problems with real companies in real time (including Fidelity, AT&T, Quintiles, and Thermofisher Scientific). With the MSMS, there's only one degree of separation between where you are and where you want to be.
