Upcoming Events


Fall 2017

  • Peter Gylfe, MSF 2010, is a Forbes 30 under 30.

    “The relationships I formed in the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program [at UF] have been really important,” he said. “We all shared a common bond of going from the University of Florida to Wall Street, which wasn’t a common path.” Gylfe recalls spending weeks prepping for interviews with his peers and taking advantage of every networking and speaker opportunity the MSF program provided. “There was a lot of grit instilled in us in going through the MSF program at UF,” he said. “Coming from that different path, we had to work harder, be more prepared, you had to have a lot of passion. Having grit instilled in us was one of the best traits of the program.”

  • Eric Evans, MSF 2013, Business Insider, Rising Stars, Age 35 and Under on Wall Street.

  • James Goyer, Kristen Mousa and Paul Stanley competed against representing schools including Harvard, Columbia, Brown, Cornell, NYU, University of Pennsylvania, University of Waterloo, University of Southern California, University of Texas Austin, University of Wisconsin, McGill University and University of Virginia. Of these teams, 18 were selected to advance to the semi-finals, and 2 were selected to move on to the finals.

  • A team of three Master of Science in Finance students won the stock pitch competition at the ENGAGE® Undergraduate Investment Conference at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business from October 20-22. James Goyer, Kristen Mousa and Paul Stanley came out on top of a field of 27 teams, including many of the most respected business schools in the country. The win was also featured by Forbes. The trio previously won competitions at the University of Georgia and Ohio State University, and they will travel to Harvard University in November to compete in another investment competition.

Should We Worry About It? How Large Is It? What Can We Do About It?”
