There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have a few questions about berkley's masters in financial eng. program, if anyone has opinions:
What is the quality of jobs that grads get afterwards? Are they forced to settle for something they're not really interested in after completing a program for which they had to go in debt?
How happy are grads with their careers afterward (this is a general question i have about financial eng grad's, not berkley in particular)? do many people decide to get out of the inudstry?
I come from an engineering background, no finance, how will this affect my job prospects?
Is the median total compensation after graduation of 150k accurate?
How much do you think this salary just reflects the cost of life in NY where most of the jobs are?
What kind of hours does the typcial quant work?
One of the prereq's for entry (for me personally), is that i pass the CFA level 1 exam in december. how hard is this if i've never had finance other than 1 derivatives course?
How many of the jobs that financial eng. grads get involve just being a programmer rather than a financial modeller and using financial modelling as a sales tool rather than for propreitary trading (i'm asking about financial eng's in general here, not just berkley)?
