What drew me to the CQF was the idea of applying math directly to finance - the course is very practical. Also what’s attractive about the program, is the way the lectures are structured, they give you a good introduction into how finance and mathematics can be used together to hopefully help you develop your career.
To do the CQF, you have to be quite committed. You won't have time for much else I’m afraid, but the joy of the structure is that it's quite flexible. You can keep learning after this course and you have the Lifelong Learning part of the program where you go online and continually learn from the new lectures they put on all the time. Once you have done the course, that is not the end – you are always a member of the CQF.
