Why UConn MSFRM?

Jason (Jiequin) says ...

 

I chose the UConn MSFRM Program because...

STEM was a big selling point for me.  Also, UConn's reputation and the vast alumni network in the finance industry.  The location of the program is ideal for someone who wants to get a foot in the door.

My favorite classes are...

The Risk Modeling classes.  I think I have learned the most from these series of courses.  Very practical curriculum.  I am able to apply most of what I have learned in class at work, which has helped me greatly.

My favorite thing about my classmates is...

That they are smart, hard-working and always strive for more.  It builds up a very competitive environment that drives me towards a better person.

I chose the UConn MSFRM Program because...

My interest is in the financial risk management field and this program just fits my goal perfectly.  I believe it is more quantitative-oriented than other similar degrees, which fits my interest.

My favorite thing about the program is...

The tight knit community and friendly staff.  If I could add one more it would be the locations - it gives us very convenient accesses to future job opportunities (NYC, Fairfield County, Hartford, CT and Boston).

I chose risk management over an MBA because...

My major at my undergraduate university was International Economy & Trade, which is less quantitative than other majors.  I wanted to comprehensively tangle with math, programming and data analysis in my graduate career.  Obviously, the major of Risk Management contains all of those important topics which persuaded me to choose it

I chose UConn MS in Financial Risk Management because...

UConn has a great reputation and academic background.  But, I was more attracted by its great location and convenient transportation.  Connecticut provides its people a wonderful living environment.  The UConn Stamford Campus is located in the city center and close to NYC.  Students here can choose where they want to go on weekends very easily.

My favorite aspect of the program is...

I have a large access to a variety of jobs after graduation, specifically jobs that are great for experience accumulation.

Why I chose UConn?

I particularly chose the University of Connecticut (UConn) MS in Financial Risk Management program because of its wide range of curriculum, impressive faculty and specific activities such as seminars, guest speaker series and diverse student organizations.

My Favorie Class is...

For an international applicant like me, knowledge of the current market scenario is a must to remain in a competitive state and the Seminar class on Introduction to US Capital Markets offered here form an important path to this learning.

My favorite aspect of the program is...

MSFRM not only focuses on the curriculum but the training on Excel VBA, R and MatLab gives real time experience. Also, the Center for Career Development guiding students as per their interests.

Why I chose to study Risk Management?

My broad work experience, my MBA in Finance and Financial Risk Management (MSFRM) program will complement one another in my career goals to help me not only gain experience in Risk Management before graduating, but also prepare me to get the FRM Certification.

Why did you choose UConn over other progams/schools?

I chose UConn for two reasons.  UConn has a strong curriculum, especially in Quantitative Methods in Risk Management,  Secondly, its students have the opportunities to participate in sponsored projects and put into practice their knowledge and get experience to enhance their resumes.  Academic work and learning experiences are important for me and UConn's MSFRM fit what I was looking for.
