Wouldn’t you want your education to prepare you for the work you’ll be doing once you graduate? With Rotman’s Master of Financial Risk Management (MFRM) that’s what you’ll get. Counting on an applied curriculum and state of the art facilities, the MFRM will prepare you for a challenging career in finance. The BMO Financial Group Finance Research and Trading Lab–otherwise known as the Rotman Finance Lab–is a key resource that will help you in three main ways:
Take theory into practice
Theory is important and you’ll certainly learn a good deal of it in the MFRM program. But theory isn’t everything. It’s also essential to learn how to put theory into practice, and this is what you’ll do in the Rotman Finance Lab. Thanks to the research databases stored in the Finance Lab and real-time access to global financial resources you’ll be able to connect your theoretical learning to what’s happening in actual securities markets.
Simulate working on a trading floor
Using the Rotman Finance Lab is a great way to prepare for what to expect if you hope to work on a trading floor. From the Rotman Interactive Trader to the Rotman Portfolio Manager, the Finance Lab is integrated with products that have been tailored to simulate real-life situations. Industry experts have shared their input with Rotman on the skills they want to see in new grads, and it is with this knowledge that our lab director, Professor Tom McCurdy and team develop simulation cases.
Be prepared for uncertainties
Financial markets bare no certainty and you should be ready for anything. Learning strategies from past cases is part of the preparation, but practice with simulation cases will surely help you become resilient to the challenges of uncertain markets. This is why the Rotman Finance Lab will become an essential part of your experience during the MFRM program. Simply put, there is no question that the lab has been designed to prepare you for a successful career in Financial Risk Management.
The Master of Financial Risk Management is a full time program designed to prepare ambitious young professionals for careers in risk management and finance.
