Recruiting, Career Development, and Job Placements
Career Development and Job Placements
Exceptional job placement and career services, combined with small class size and personalized attention, set the BCF MFIN program apart.
Princeton University’s Master in Finance program enrolls approximately 25 students each year out of more than 600 applicants. Because of the small size of the program and its selectivity, students are able to meet high academic standards and create strong working relationships with both the faculty and each other. Ultimately, these factors—combined with the program’s intense focus on recruiting and career development— result in an outstanding track record for graduate job placements.
Career Development Offerings
Princeton BCF ensures all Master in Finance students receive a wealth of resources for career development. These services begin at the very start of the program with our Master in Finance Career Boot Camp (which precedes the first week of classes) and continue through graduation.
All students are encouraged to attend the center’s Career Speaker Series featuring presentations by leading voices in the field.
Students have access to a dedicated career advisor throughout the course of their program, and also have access to a breadth of resources at the Princeton University Career Development Center.
In addition to managing Princeton BCF’s Corporate Affiliates Program to build pipelines between students and top-rated firms, the center’s Manager of Career Development and External Relations, Lindsay Bracken, regularly facilitates alumni mentorship connections. Students can meet with Bracken at any point for practice mock interviews and resume reviews.
Princeton BCF Alumni Network
Princeton BCF is known for its strong alumni network and corporate affiliates, ensuring students and graduates make important connections and build lasting relationships in the finance industry.
