Careers in Finance

MSF graduates find employment at the most prestigious financial institutions including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo, among others. Moreover, GWSB's unique location in Washington, D.C. offers MSF graduates the opportunity to be employed at prominent and attractive international financial organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the International Financial Corporation, and the Inter-American Development Bank. Furthermore, our graduates find employment with many government agencies such as the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Department of Treasury or with private financial corporations like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

In order to facilitate employment for program graduates, we are actively engaged in collaboration with a variety of financial institutions through faculty, alumni and administration in:

  • Posting job openings
  • Setting up interviews
  • Creating demand for MSF graduates

Additionally, we maintain a database of resumes accessible to potential employers, organize career workshops to prepare students in their job search and interviews, and collaborate with the F. David Fowler Career Center on a variety of career services. Finally, as a member of the International Association of Financial Engineers (IAFE), we organize trips to New York City to participate in the Financial Mathematics Career Fair.

To further promote internships and full time employment, each year the MSF program creates a resume book of a collection of current students’ resumes who are seeking new career opportunities.
