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

There are multiple reasons why I chose the MFRM program. First of all, I have a strong interest in risk management, especially market and liquidity risk, and the program has strong academic and career support in this field. Secondly, U of T is located in downtown Toronto, and together with the extensive alumni network, gives us a lot more career opportunities compared to other business schools. Lastly, I have grown up in New York, but I have always wanted to live in Toronto, and this program gives me a chance to start a new life. 

What are your top reasons for choosing Rotman? 

Rigorous academic curriculums, extensive alumni and professional network, world-class trading and research lab.

What are you looking forward to most in the program?

The industry project with the National Bank of Canada. I believe it is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the skills learned in class and apply them onto a real-life industry setting. 


The Master of Financial Risk Management is a full time program designed to prepare ambitious young professionals for careers in risk management and finance.
