The MS in Mathematical Finance & Financial Technology (MSMFT) is not for the faint of heart. This three-semester, 17-month program is for ambitious students, ready to take on a demanding curriculum.
Guided by our faculty, world-renowned scholars, and leading industry practitioners, you’ll master a thoughtfully balanced mix of finance, mathematics, data analytics, and computer programming to gain the tools you need to thrive wherever you set your sights: from investment banks to hedge funds to financial technology companies.
You’ll have the opportunity to complete a summer internship or an industry-sponsored project where you’ll gain valuable practical skills and become more marketable to employers. At Boston University Questrom School of Business, we’re defining the future of Mathematical Finance. Join us.
When reviewing applicants, we consider the whole picture: academic record, quantitative and analytical skills, professional experience, communication skills, and diversity. We aim to create a class filled with a variety of cultures, life experiences, and backgrounds so that your learning environment expands your outlook and sparks new ideas. MSMFT students are collaborative, highly motivated, and consider themselves global citizens.
If you have your sights set on becoming a quantitative analyst, developer, portfolio manager, risk analyst, financial technologist, researcher, consultant, or any other role where your unique skill set will set you apart from the competition, MSMFT is your answer.
Ready to take the next step? We encourage applicants with strong quantitative backgrounds—not just finance—to apply to Questrom. We look forward to hearing from you!
When you’re ready to apply, start with our online application form. You may submit one application per entry term, and you can check the status of an existing application at any time. Review the admissions checklist to stay on top of required materials, and keep an eye on our deadlines, too.
Feel free to contact us with any questions along the way. We want the admissions process to be as simple and transparent as possible. Reach out to the Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid Office at (617) 353-2670 or email@example.com.
The Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid Office keeps all records on file for one year. We welcome your re-application.
Each re-applicant is required to submit a new application form and fee ($125); an essay discussing updates or changes since the time of the previous application, as well as reasons for re-applying; an updated resume; a new letter of recommendation; official university-level transcripts (if the re-applicant has taken new coursework since the time of their first application); and updated GMAT or GRE results (if applicable).
Application Fee Waiver Eligibility
Application Fee Waiver
The Graduate Admissions and Financial Aid Office will waive the application fee for current BU employees, as well as for those who attended select admissions events and off-site fairs.
In addition, we will waive the application fee for those who are members or alumni of the following programs:
|The US Military||AmeriCorps||Education Pioneers|
|Management Leadership for
Tomorrow MBA Fellows
|Teach for America||Historically Black Colleges|
|The Peace Corps||City Year Corps||Hispanic Serving Institutions|
To take advantage of this waiver, please fill out the form below once your application has been started. Your CAS ID can be found at the top right of the online application. Once we process your fee waiver request, you’ll receive a follow-up email with additional instructions on how to submit your application. DO NOT click “submit and pay for programs” prior to receiving these instructions. We are unable to offer application fee refunds.
Due to the high volume of applications we receive, your application fee waiver may take a few business days to process. If you submit this request before or on one of our application deadlines but do not receive a confirmation from us that same day, your application will still be considered “on time” for the deadline to which you applied. You must submit your waiver request before you submit your application in order for the fee waiver to be applied.
Please note: If you have been approved for an application fee waiver and are applying to one of our dual degree programs, the application fee waiver will be applied to your Questrom application only. You will still need to pay the required application fee for the other school at BU to which you are applying.
