MCFAM Seminar - QUANTITATIVE FINANCE: What is it and is this the right career for me?

Abstract: Quantitative Finance is a dynamic and highly interdisciplinary field that offers a variety of highly rewarding career opportunities. If you are majoring in Mathematics, Statistics, Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Economics, Finance, or another STEM field, you are likely a good candidate for this career. This seminar will provide valuable insights into the profession, discussing the roles of quantitative analysts ("quants") and exploring potential pathways to enter this exciting field.
