Admissions

In the Master of Science in Financial Mathematics (MSFM) program, we are addressing a rapidly changing industry by providing full-time students with an accelerated, five-quarter curriculum. Evening courses and flexible registration allow part-time students to progress at whatever speed fits their needs. Along the way, you will develop relationships with our large alumni network, UChicago faculty, our industry partners, and dedicated career-development specialists.
