Our program welcomed its first class of incoming students in Fall 2006. Rutgers University has three graduation dates per year: January, May, and October. Despite the challenging economic climate, our graduates have fared well in the quantitative finance job marketplace:
- 100% of 2007 and 2008 graduates are employed in the financial industry;
- of our 2009 graduates, all but one, have received and accepted employment offers;
- for 2010, 100% and 96% of our January and May graduates, respectively, are employed in the field to date.
Firms hiring our students include:
Bank of America Bank of New York Mellon Bloomberg Blue Spruce Global Advisors Credit Suisse Deutsche Bank Ernst & Young Fidelity Investments Goldman Sachs ING JPMorgan
Merck & Co. Morgan Stanley Moodyâ€™s Numerix R.G. Niederhoffer Capital Management RBC Capital Markets SFC Partners Standard and Poorâ€™s State Street Associates Wachovia
We have a strong network of industry contacts and that is a tremendous advantage when our graduates are seeking internships or full-time employment. Unlike many other programs, we have both a full-time Director of Career Management Services (Carla Visser) and a full-time Program Administrator (Ana Mastrogiovanni). Carla provides expert assistance to students during their career search and develop internship and job opportunities with employers, while Ana provides invaluable administrative guidance for our students from initial application for admission through graduation. * Graduates who do not respond to placement inquiries are not counted in our placement totals.
