Job Placement and Career Services

The Quantitative Finance and Risk Management program is designed to prepare graduates to become masterful quantitative analysts and leading problem-solvers in the financial industry. In order to assist in this, our program staff is dedicated to placing students in summer internships and full-time jobs that best reflect their interests, strengths, and aspirations.

Quant Students have access to the following services and opportunities:

Throughout the year, Quant students participate in program-sponsored career development activities and receive individualized assistance in planning for and pursuing job opportunities. Our office also works directly with employers to match our students with appropriate positions. More information on the workshops, seminars, and other activities that support students’ journey toward becoming quantitative analysts can be found on our Student Life page.

Our students have access to all of the resources and opportunities provided by the University of Michigan Career Center, including one-on-one career advising, resume and cover letter reviews, job postings, and on-campus recruiting events. Our office works with the Career Center to identify and promote the opportunities that will be most valuable to our students.

The Mathematics Department hosts an annual Mathematics Career Fair for all students. The financial industry is well represented at the Career Fair, making it a prime opportunity for Quant students to explore career options and make connections with employers. Learn more about the event here.

Students in the Quantitative Finance and Risk Management are also invited to participate in the annual Statistics Career Fair, which is hosted by our partner department and is specifically focused on master’s students.
