Graduate Programs in Financial Engineering and Risk Management

Financial Engineering News 2005 Special Report on Graduate Education Programs in Financial Engineering and Risk Management

Here is an interesting article on FE programs across the world. It is interesting because the article talks about the mix of "theory vs practice". This is abolsutely important. While some programs are very well reputed, they offer very theoretical courses, which may not be practical on the street.

In my opinion, talking to alums and current students, Berkeley MFE gives a well-balanced mix of coursework - theory and practice. In addition, it prepares for quantitative careers above and beyond Computational Finance. The computational part is just a tool (like a HP12C, if you will). The intuition, understanding and communication of models is key!!
