Waiving GRE/GMAT – Georgia Tech MS in Quantitative and Computational Finance Program


I am the Program/Recruiting Manager for Georgia Tech’s MS in Quantitative and Computational Finance Program . We are one of the only “Financial Engineering” programs in the Southern US, and are currently ranked among the top in QuantNet’s ranking of Financial Engineering Programs in North America. Our students learn the quantitative/analytical and computational skills needed to work in various sectors within the finance industry, including investment banking, sales and trading, asset/wealth management, risk management, financial technology, data science, analytics, consulting and more.

 Some quick facts about graduates from our program:

  • 96% of QCF Fall 2019 graduates and 100% of Fall 2018 graduates seeking full-time employment were employed within 3 months of graduating from the program.
  • Average compensation for Fall 2019 grads was $115k with our highest compensation coming in @ $180k.
  • Employers of our recent graduates include: JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Dimensional Fund Advisors, EY, Bank of America, Barclays, Truist, BlackRock, UBS, Millennium Advisors, Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, ICE, Citi, Invesco and more…
  •  Concepts/projects in Machine Learning will be covered in each core and targeted elective class.
  •  Students join the program from undergraduate majors in math/applied math, computer science, all engineering, statistics, economics, etc.
  • No full-time work experience is required to be admitted to the program and no prior academic experience in finance is required.

Given the recent health crisis and that some students have unexpectedly lost employment opportunities, we have decided to relax our admissions requirements a bit for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 admission for qualified candidates. We will waive the GRE/GMAT requirement for those with a GPA 3.5 or higher. If interested, we encourage you to APPLY by May 20th. I will be hosting a webinar information session about the MS QCF Program on Friday, May 15th  @ 12pm EDT/11am CDT and would encourage you to attend. Registration for the webinar can be found HERE Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions in the meantime.

Thank you very much for your time and please keep well!

L.A.S.O.S NEW Program at FLACSO-Argentina

In the current scenario that COVID-19 is shanking the world, and besides, we don´t precisely know the transformative result and the total consequences for International Education. Even in a global context where international travel is not feasible for summer 2020, We at @Adelastudyabroad of @FLACSO Argentina, continue with the commitment to our goals to enhance transnational connection, global education, and deepening intercultural dialogues more than ever! 

That is why I am so excited to announce the launch of a new immersive and innovative virtual study abroad experience: Latin American Online Summer (L.A.S.O.S.) This four weeks-long program, based out of Area de Estudios Latinoamerican.

Despite the virtual nature of the program, our classes use participatory and discussion-based pedagogy to encourage meaningful student participation. The classes will consist of live lectures and discussion sessions, interactive activities, multimedia resources, forum debates, and online essay submission and feedback, which will give students the possibility to work with professors and students from different disciplines and engage deeply with the course material. As part of the course schedule, students will have the opportunity to virtually interview esteemed guest lecturers such as politicians, social activists, policymakers, local artists, and many more. The program will contain a mix of students from the United States, Canada, and Latin America, allowing participants to build connections with students from other cultures and social realities. 

We have also developed the Intercultural Learning Initiative. The one-credit optional workshop included at no extra cost in which students will be able to engage with Argentine culture through activities such as virtually debates, master classes, live performances, and the Rio de la Plata Spanish language learning. See the information below!

Please share with anyone that might be interested and contact us to continue working on institutional collaborations.


Northwestern University Master of Science in Law Symposium Friday, May 8th

On behalf of the Master of Science in Law (MSL) Program at the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, I’d like to invite Purdue University students to join us for an upcoming information session/open house event, held over Zoom, on Friday, May 8, 2020 from 4:30 – 7:00 PM CT.

The Information Session runs from 4:30 – 5:30 PM CT. It will include an overview of the Master of Science in Law program, during which program staff and current students will be on hand to describe the MSL curriculum and the student experience in the program. The Open House part of the event runs from 5:30 – 7:00 PM CT, and includes our annual MSL Symposium, which is a showcase of student work in the MSL program. The Symposium – “At the Intersection: STEM, Law, Business, and the MSL” – highlights the importance of cross-disciplinary awareness at the intersection of STEM, law, and business, the type of thinking that is at the heart of the Master of Science in Law program. For more details about the Symposium, check out our Symposium webpage.

These two combined events – the Info Session and the Open House/Symposium – provide an excellent opportunity to learn about the unique MSL program, which is an interdisciplinary degree designed especially for STEM students and professionals. The MSL program focuses on business and entrepreneurship, intellectual property and patent design, regulatory analysis and strategy, and also skills development – oral and written communication, quantitative skills, negotiations, etc. Students can complete the full-time program in nine months, or the part-time program (via either the residential or online format) in two to four years.
