Global Jobs in Quantitative Finance

In recent years there has been a tremendous increase in demand for mathematicians in the finance industry, and in the field of quantitative/mathematical finance. A one-year master's degree in financial engineering provides an excellent entry point to this global industry, which requires a very strong background in mathematics. To learn more about this type of career, including universities that offer further study (see Student Resources), take a look at the International Association of Financial Engineers.
