The Full Time Masters in Mathematics in Finance at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University is a three-semester professional masters degree with the expectation that students are seeking positions in the financial industry. Entry into the full-time MS program can be made only in the fall. Students take four courses per semester, participate in the weekly Masters Seminar, and usually do an internship during the summer between the second and third semesters. While the program is not able to guarantee placement in summer internship positions, we do have strong contacts within the financial community and offer significant help by distributing resumes to prospective employers and hosting on-campus interviews. The track record of our students receiving summer internships is extremely strong. We place heavy emphasis on job placement, with assistance given to resume preparation, interviewing skills, and access to our growing network of contacts.
