Celebrating Two Decades of Educational Excellence: Wilmott Magazine Dedicates November Issue to the CQF Program

This November, we are not the only ones celebrating the Certificate in Quantitative Finance (CQF) program's remarkable 20-year journey. Wilmott magazine has joined us to commemorate this significant milestone by dedicating their November 2023 issue to the CQF program. 

This issue includes insightful research papers from our faculty; a candid interview with Dr. Randeep Gug, Managing Director of the CQF and CQF Institute, that explores the 20-year evolution of the program; and a sneak peek into the CQF Institute's mission to educate and grow the quantitative finance community through a wide range of initiatives and events. However, what truly captures the essence of the CQF program is the individual success of our alumni, and the magazine is adorned with narratives of senior members of our alumni community who have carved notable paths in the finance industry. Their interviews, highlighting their career paths, advice for new professionals, and the role of CQF in their respective journeys, embody the transformative power of the CQF.
