I originally started off my career working in commodities trading. Having worked with a lot of people coming from a financial engineering background, I heard a lot of good comments about the CQF Program. I felt that the CQF was a good way of improving my maths while working at the same time – reputable professors, Wilmott, the curriculum, the students involved – I thought it was a good way of learning information that would be applicable to what I was doing.
I would agree that the CQF has definitely had an impact on my job. It has helped me to be able to speak to clients in different asset classes, sometimes a bit more technical than others. The CQF has given me the information, the tools and the knowledge necessary to speak to clients and price assets in an effective manner.
