The Shidler College of Business will graduate our rst class of
Master in Financial Engineering (MFE) students in August 2010.
Financial Engineering is a fairly new degree, o ered currently
by about 150 universities worldwide. Financial Engineering is a
combination of three elds: 1) Finance, 2) Mathematics, and
3) Computer Science. Hence our students are well prepared
for careers in risk management, portfolio optimization, man-
agement, trading, and any type of complex analyses.

Our students will be able to conduct an internship from July 4th
to August 13. This is a good opportunity for your company to see
if the student is a ‘good t’ for possible full time employment.
Please take the time to look through our guide. We hope that
some students will interest you!

If you would like additional information on our students, please
