Watch: Coding Opens Doors in Finance

One year ago if you had told Jaime Staengel, a 2018 MS in Finance graduate, that she would be coding, she “would not have believed you.” But because Simon’s MS in Finance program is STEM-designated, she found herself doing just that in her Quantitative Finance with Python course. She now understands that coding opens doors in finance, including the ability to obtain and analyze large quantities of data to derive insights and drive decision-making.

These skills paid off in big way. Jaime interviewed with a Simon alum at Corning Inc. and was offered a full-time position in a quantitative finance role.
