Mathematical Finance Employers

Institutions are more eager than ever to employ bright mathematical finance (MSMF) professionals applying rigorous analyses to financial data. The MSMF program prepares graduates with the skills necessary to develop high-level expertise in the quantitative side of finance and includes a real-world internship.


Internships are arranged by an experienced team that works with each student on an individual basis. An internship through the Boston University’s MSMF program offers students many different opportunities, including experience in a professional setting, a network of contacts in the field, industry and role exploration, and career and academic goals.

Over the last three years, we have averaged a 91% internship placement rate.
