The New York campus is located at 55 Broad Street in downtown Manhattan, just a few doors down from the NYSE and such well known names as Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan and Bank of New York Mellon. The facility is composed of three large classrooms, a number of offices and conference rooms, a recreation room, two pantries, and a large lobby.
The full-time student class averages between thirty and thirty-five; another sixty-five students work full-time in the industry, taking the program part-time. Though they hail from all areas in the Tri-State region (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut), they all come to work in New York's financial district - either midtown, downtown or across the river in Jersey City.
Two week-long Recruiting Events are held here - one in the fall for MSCF students seeking full-time positions after their December graduation and one just after the first of the year for those seeking summer internships. These are formal interview sessions, combined with more casual "networking" after-business socials that allow our current students the opportunity to mingle with our alums - many of whom are working with the major financial firms headquartered in the City and surrounding areas.
The NYC MSCF campus is often host (broadcasting by videoconference back to Pittsburgh) to our Friday lunch-time Speaker Series, at which respected paractioners come to speak to our students and alums about career paths and the practical applications of quantitative finance in the industry.
