Because it lacked sufficient funds to operate, it eventually merged with the state-run Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College to form the University of California, the first full-curriculum public university in the state.
The Haas MFE Program is one of only two degree programs in financial engineering offered solely under the auspices of a business school.
Most financial engineering programs are taught in mathematics, engineering or operations research departments. As a result, MFE students learn about computational finance within the context of business and economic principles, and enjoy the additional advantages of the business school's career services, corporate contacts, and orientation towards business applications.
The MFE program is also the only Financial Engineering program that includes a ten-week, mid-program, winter internship as part of the curriculum. How many people do you admit each year? Starting in springthe MFE Program will be taking two cohorts for a total of 80 students.
We are also adding an emphasis in data science to our curriculum. Are MFE courses offered online or part time for working individuals? There are currently no courses offered online or part-time. All courses are taught on the UC Berkeley campus during the month, full-time program.
Due to the intensive nature of the program it is not feasible for students to work while in the program, outside of the Fall intership period.
What is the academic calendar for the MFE? See our academic calendar page. Do you accept credits and transfers from other universities? No, we do not. The MFE curriculum is designed so that each series of 8 week courses work in tandem. Finally, MFE courses are taught by the finest faculty in the UC system; we could not maintain the level of difficulty and quality of the MFE education from Haas if we allowed people to transfer in with credits.
For the same reasons, we cannot allow students to "test out" of courses. What is the difference between an MFE and other degrees? Many MBA programs can be taken part-time, while our program is full-time only.
In the MFE program, we only cover these topics as they relate to the specific field of Financial Engineering. Most MBA programs do not require the high level of math, analytic ability, or computer programming experience required by the MFE program.
The combination of skills obtained by MFE graduates understanding of complex financial strategies, financial modeling ability and computational proficiency are difficult for employers to find in graduates of standard MBA or Engineering programs.
A PhD can take 5 to 6 years and is recommended for students who want to pursue a career in academia. To some extent, the MFE may be seen as an attractive alternative to a doctoral program in finance for those interested in commercial rather than academic careers.
The main difference is that a CFA is an independent certification process, not an academic distinction. For some jobs it is desirable to have both, but they are not interchangeable by definition. I am interested in a Ph. Does the MFE lead to a Ph.

We would like to know the grades of any courses you take to prepare for the MFE, and we will look at grades you get in our pre-program courses as well. Do you have to be a UC Berkeley student to take the pre-program courses? No, the pre-program courses are open to everyone.AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITIES’ JOHN MONASH SCHOLAR.
