Wondering whether the Master of Financial Risk Management (MFRM) at the Rotman School of Management is the right program for you? Watch this video to learn compelling reasons why this program will give you a competitive advantage in the job market.
With so many schools and so many different specializations, there are certain characteristics that you should always keep in mind when choosing the graduate program that’s right for you.
First, you should ask yourself whether the program will prepare you for a career in high-demand. After all, school is an investment in yourself and your career. The 2008 financial crisis has increased the need for experts in financial risk management, who have the skills to solve complex financial issues. Strongly connected to industry, the MFRM program was created to fill this gap. All MFRM courses, along with an industry-driven Risk Management Project, are designed to prepare you to become the risk management expert you need to be. Aside from the subject-specific and quantitative skills taught throughout the 8 months of the program, the MFRM will ensure that you have the soft skills sought after by employers.
Second, it is also important to consider whether your school can help you connect with industry. Often, the best schools will have ties with industry, creating a reciprocal feed of input and ideas. This is the case with Stanford and Silicon Valley, and it is also the case with Rotman and the Financial Industry in Toronto. For example, as a student of the MFRM you’ll benefit from learning from an executive-in-residence, currently working in industry. Additionally, the MFRM is also forming an Advisory Board, which will be made up of senior industry leaders.
If you want to secure a successful career in financial risk management, there is simply no question that this program can help you achieve your goal.
