MiQE/F, what next? Graduates of pure business and economics programmes often lack an indepth training in quantitative methods. Mathematicians and statisticians often lack an economics or finance background. As a MiQE/F graduate, you bridge this gap with your diverse skillset. Policy and financial institutions and firms in the private sector are increasingly confronted with complex problems requiring a confident application of methods as well as a deep understanding of economic processes and the finance sector. MiQE/F graduates are well prepared for responsible positions in the areas of banking and finance, consulting and insurance. Due to its strong methodological training, MiQE/F graduates are also extremely well equipped to pursue an academic career. Our MiQE/F graduates: Where are they now?
