Haas Home Program Overview Curriculum Prerequisites Pre-Program C ourses Academic C alendar Degree Requirements C ontact MFE Admissions

Prerequisites

Successful candidates for the MFE Program will have a strong background in

C omputer programming High-level math and statistics Finance studies Language skills Statistical and econometric applications (Sas, Gauss, RATS, S-Plus, or Garch) Mathematical tools (MatLab, Mathematica, or MathC ad) Before the program you are applying to is scheduled to begin, you should: Have takenor have a plan in place to takethe prerequisite courses listed below for a grade of "B" or higher Plan to take all of the pre-program courses in addition to the prerequisites to reinforce your understanding of the basic concepts Please note that you do not necessarily need to complete all of the coursework prior to submitting your application, but you do need to have a clear plan in place to complete the coursework between the time of application and the time the program begins. For students who have not taken a math course in more than 5 years, we do recommend some type of refresher course in order to excel in the program.

Internship: Mizuho Corporate Bank Tokyo, Japan "The Berkeley MFE curriculum is very practical. Ive learned solutions to problems that I face in my work."
