I have a Bachelors degree in Economics Honours from the University of Delhi and presently I am doing a 1-year Graduate Diploma in Finance from the University of London (through an affiliate centre). I have also cleared my CFA level 1. Now, I am thinking of applying to the MS in Financial Engineering programs in USA eg. UCLA, University of Chicago, USC Viterbi, Georgia Institute of technology.

Is a Btech engineering degree required for this masters program or do they take students from other bachelor fields (Economics)?

Hello Shivin95

I mean what kind of question is that ?? :)

Why you didn't check websites of universities and programs you want to attend ?

Of course they do accept from Economics background.


UCLA has 28% students from your bachelor background (Econ/Fin) and 26% from same background on graduate level, currently enrolled in MS in Financial Engineering program, that you want to attend.

https://www.anderson.ucla.edu/degrees/m ... admissions


USC Viterbi stated "Applicants with a bachelor of science in economics are also eligible to apply" :

Do your homework for the rest of the programs, although I know in advance you will find the same info that you are of course eligible to apply with economics background.


Furthermore, I can recommend probably the best in the world program in Financial Engineering from Berkeley to be added to your list:

Good Luck on becoming a Quant :geek: :cool:

Just curious, why do you say the best program in the world is MFE from Berkeley?
Why not MIT's MFin?
