Why did you decide to study the Master of Financial Risk Management program?

I was always interested in the risk management field. Working at the trading desk for a corporate credit hedge fund, I had the chance to experience first-hand the importance of having appropriate risk and control mechanisms especially when it comes to market and liquidity risk. The MFRM program ticked all the boxes for me: interesting curriculum, stellar faculty lineup, amazing resources, and numerous opportunities to network with former alumni. 

What are your top reasons for choosing Rotman?

  • Rotman’s strong recognition throughout Canada
  • Large alumni network
  • World-renowned faculty
  • Outstanding campus resources

What are you looking forward to most in the program?

One of the things I am most looking forward to is interacting with my peers and professors. The MFRM program attracts students from various academic backgrounds and skill sets which makes for the perfect environment to learn from each other. The faculty at Rotman is one of the best in Canada, and I am greatly looking forward to learning from them.

The industry project will enable me to directly apply what we learn in class in a real-world environment. I will get to see how the industry approaches the various aspects of risk management, as well as a great opportunity to network!
