March 7, 2014 The Rutgers Mathematical Finance Master's Program is a STEM certified program. We are an academic affiliate member of the International Association of Quantitative Finance so our students can join and benefit from their activities. In addition, our students participate in skill-building activities such as the Rotman International Trading Competition, the IAQF Case Competition and the PRMIA Case Competition. We also have a Quant Club where students can develop leadership skills.
Our program welcomed its first class of incoming students in Fall 2006. Rutgers University has three graduation dates per year: January, May and October.
Here are the employment statistics for our graduates:
* 100% of 2007 and 2008 graduates are employed;
* In 2009, all our graduates, except one, received and accepted employment offers;
* In 2010, 98% of our graduates are employed;
* For 2011, 89% of our students found employment;

We have a network of industry contacts that helps our students find internships and jobs.
Unlike many other programs, our students receive individual support and guidance as we have both a full-time Director of Career Management Services (Carla Visser) and a full-time Program Administrator (Ana Mastrogiovanni).
Carla provides individual career advisement as well as workshops and seminars on job search and professional development skills. She also partners with employers to identify internships and employment opportunities. In addition, Carla organizes weekly seminars with experts from finance who share their expertise with our students.
Ana is our lynchpin and 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 employment statistics.
