The CQF content is superbly comprised and extremely captivating. The team of instructors is composed of top professionals in the industry. You really notice and appreciate it when they elaborate and explain the hidden subtleties of the models, hardly visible at first but encountered day by day, in real operations.
Pure academics do not often have such experience. If you have a Masters or PhD, the CQF is the perfect vehicle for entering into the realm of mathematical modeling for quantitative finance.
