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; the PRMIA Case Competition; CQA Trading Challenge. We also have a Quant Club where students can develop leadership skills.

Career Service Support Staff
- 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 (Sunita Jagtiani-Sanghvi) and a full-time Program Administrator (Ana Mastrogiovanni).
- Sunita 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, Sunita 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.
