Why did you decide to study the Master of Financial Risk Management program?
The best way to prepare for a career in an area as complex and constantly evolving as the financial industry is to learn how to think critically about the challenges financial institutions face today and will be in the future. The Master of Financial Risk Management was the only program that offered a broad and deep study of financial risk management, the opportunity to develop my ability to think critically about the challenges facing financial institutions and the skills to develop solutions. Being a part of the Rotman School of Management is also a huge plus; its world class faculty, industry connections and opportunities to develop professionally and network adds to the experience and will pay dividends when searching for a full-time job and into my career.
What are your top reasons for choosing Rotman?
- World class faculty
- Strong ties to industry, few blocks from Bay St.
- Very strong alumni network in the major financial centers of the world
- Resources of a world class business school: improve your professional skills, presentation skills, many speaker series and networking opportunities, to name a few
What are you looking forward to most in the program?
Two things that I’m most excited about is the opportunity to learn directly from excellent professors as well as the MFRM industry project.
Our professors are at the forefront of financial research but I learned early on that they’re very approachable and willing to help students learn and develop. Office hours are an excellent opportunity to learn about their experiences collaborating with industry, truly a unique opportunity for students at Rotman.
The industry project will be a great opportunity to apply what we’ve learned in the first semester, both course work and professional skills. We’re looking forward to working with our sponsors on high-priority, value-add initiatives that will give us meaningful experience heading into our full-time recruitment season.
The Master of Financial Risk Management is a full time program designed to prepare ambitious young professionals for careers in risk management and finance.
