Admissions

At 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, every student will develop relationships with our large alumni network, UChicago faculty, our industry partners, and dedicated career-development specialists.
