Andy,

It's highly specialized, math-intensive work. It's interesting stuff, and I thought about it for a spell, but I decided against it for me, personally. I'm proably not gifted enough in theoretical quant to be really good at the job.

On the other hand, you can probably make $150,000 yearly if you're any good at it.

Check out The Global Association of Risk Professionals-- they have some message boards where you can talk to people who do FE for a living.

Or, if the boards don't belong to GARP, you can probably find them via a Google search.

If you don't get anywhere, PM me.

I was also looking at financial engineering. You know what's kinda interesting... at Cornell, Financial Engineering is part of the Industrial Engineering and Operations Research Department.

What's interesting is that you can get and IEOR master's degree as a 1 year program (not sure if that applies to that particular major though). I'm not sure if it's offered in the B-school there. So if your interested in that area, you may want to look at some school's IEOR department for more info.
