"Financial Math students at NCSU started this spring semester with gusto. After a relaxing winter vacation and eager to get back to studies, students had their first meeting with the Director of Career Services, Mrs. Leslie Bowman. In this meeting students were briefed about professional etiquettes and were given tips on how to engage potential recruiters in conversation.
These activities make the Financial Math program at NCSU unique. It is not just the interesting classes, the supportive professors but also the keen interest taken by the program in their overall development which attracts the best of students to the university.
The Director of the program, Dr. Jeffrey Scroggs leaves no stone unturned to give students exposure to the working of the real world of finance. As part of these efforts, Dr. Scroggs and Mrs. Bowman invited alumni of the program, working with SAS, to talk with students.
The session was interactive and carried valuable insight into the software industry. Alumni of the program like Mr. Albert Hopping are a valuable asset to the program, and are intimately involved in adding value to the program. Thus, graduate students of the Financial Math program get the best of both, academic and professional worlds."
