What our students say?


"I chose the MMF program because you get the best of both worlds: in-class teaching from one of the
most established Finance faculties in Canada and hands-on learning of quantitative methods and
fundamental investing from Desautels Capital Management. The program is rigorous but rewarding,
benefitting those with a strong momentum to explore Finance, despite coming from non-finance or
finance backgrounds.
- Tian (Tina) Yang, Bachelor of Mathematics, University of Waterloo

I attend weekly pro-seminars with industry leaders, identify lucrative equity investments, and engage in
other activities that give me hands-on experience that will be an asset when I begin my career. This
program challenges me every single day in one form or the other, but I believe that this is an essential
ingredient to success in finance. It is thrilling to be a part of this journey.
- Vivek Sharma, Bachelor of Business Studies, University of Delhi

I chose the program as a way to bridge the gap between my undergraduate education and a career in
finance. The program has been fast-paced and challenging so far, but also invigorating. Only one month
in, and I'm already more prepared to enter the workforce than before.
- Kisa Giebink, BSc. Agro-Environmental Sciences, McGill University
