Undergraduate Quant Degrees

Postby icomeinpeace » Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:12 pm

Dear Mark,

Will you be so kind and provide your opinion on the following undergraduate program?

http://ugradcalendar.uwaterloo.ca/page/MATH-Actuarial-Science-Mathematical-Finance

I initially thought they only thing the program was lacking was a course in Computer Programming, but then I realized the description provided was just for the last three years of the degree with the first year having a mandatory course in CP. Also, there is the opportunity to take even more programming courses through electives outside the main program.

Since it's not common to find Quant degrees at the undergraduate level, I thought interesting to know your opinion on it. I know a program desctription is very high level, but does it at least appear complete to you?

Thanks a lot for your help,
icomeinpeace
