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.

COME TO AN INFO SESSION!
Wednesday, March 1st, 4:30 at the Career Options Resource Center, Library, 3rd Floor
Come meet Leislie Godo-Solo, a recruiter for IRT. Learn more about the summer and year-long programs and, if you're interested, schedule an interview.
When: Tuesday, February 28th, 6:00
Where: Career Options Resource Center, Library, 3rd Floor
Dinner will be served!!
This workshop is sponsored by The James Baldwin Program, Critical Studies of Childhood, Youth and Learning (CYL), and The Career Options Resource Center (CORC)
The Institute for Recruitment of Teachers (IRT) addresses the lack of diversity in the nation’s teaching faculties by recruiting outstanding students of color and other scholars committed to diversity, counseling them through the graduate school application process, and advocating for sufficient funding for advanced study. IRT graduates have enjoyed remarkable success securing jobs as K-12 teachers, counselors and principals, as well as professors, university administrators and leaders.
Two programs are available:
Each year, 25-30 Interns are selected by the IRT to participate in an intense four-week Summer Workshop at Phillips Academy. The dates of the 2016 Summer Workshop are Monday, June 27th through Saturday, July 23rd. During the summer, interns and faculty spend nine hours together each weekday in seminar discussions and activities. The syllabus consists of traditional and cutting-edge theory and cultural criticism in the disciplines of education, the humanities, and social science designed to introduce students to the philosophical rigors associated with the kinds of texts one encounters throughout graduate study. The summer program also includes lectures, writing conferences, debates, films, and presentations by nationally known educators, artists, and poets. Students also prepare for the GRE and begin work on their statements of purpose.
In mid-July, the IRT hosts its renowned annual Recruiters’ Weekend for all students where over 60 graduate school deans and admissions representatives from IRT consortium institutions are eager to speak with potential candidates about their graduate programs. Our 2016 Recruiters’ Weekend will be held on Friday, July 15th, and Saturday, July 16th.
Summer workshop participants receive a $1,200 stipend, travel expenses (for those traveling by plane or train), and room and board.
Admission for the summer workshop is highly selective. If we are unable to offer you a place in the workshop, you will still be considered automatically for a place in the year-long Associates Program.
Along with the students who participate in the Summer Workshop, the IRT also selects at least 70 outstanding students to enroll in the Associate Program. Associates do not participate in the summer workshop, but, like Interns, are selected through a rigorous application process. The Associate program is geared toward undergraduates and recent college graduates who otherwise are engaged during the summer in research, teaching, or other opportunities. Both Interns and Associates are offered extensive counseling and assistance in negotiating the graduate school application process.

Friday, March 3, 2 pm, CORC, 3rd Floor Library
