The MFE was launched in 1999 by the Centre for Financial Engineering at NUS, the predecessor to RMI. It aims to equip finance and banking industry professionals and fresh graduates with current knowledge and skills in financial innovations and technology. The domain knowledge includes financial product development, modelling of prices, hedging, investment technology, risk analyses and computational methods.
There are many MFE programs available and the RMI MFE distinguishes itself by striving to shape its students into ‘doers’ – people with the theoretical background necessary to approach complex financial problems and the practical know-how to solve these problems.
RMI is a world leader in advancing innovative solutions to risk management challenges. We offer an environment where new ideas are created and innovative solutions are put to real practice. Our flagship non-profit Credit Research Initiative, launched in July 2009, views credit ratings as a “public good” and approaches the rating methodology development in the spirit of Wikipedia. Today, RMI produces daily updated default forecasts for over 35,000 listed firms in over 100 economies around the world (http://rmicri.org). As an MFE student of RMI, you will have a unique opportunity to hone research skills and contribute towards building a critical part of the world financial infrastructure.
