Dear Professors, 
The Berkeley MFE  (Master of Financial Engineering) Program is currently accepting applications for the 2016-17 cohort, which begins in March 2016.  We’re interested in speaking with your top students – grad students, postdocs, and undergrads, as well as alumni, to discuss how their strong quantitative backgrounds (engineering, physics, math, computer science, and related fields) can prepare them for a career in finance.  We’ve pasted an announcement below with information on our summer information session schedule.  For students who are not in one of the locations listed below, we hold online information sessions biweekly. 

Please kindly forward our announcement to your students.  

Thank you!
Kind regards,
Linda Kreitzman
Assistant Dean
Executive Director, MFE Program
Haas School of Business
The Berkeley Master of Financial Engineering Program is well-known for its deep industry connections, strong alumni network, and tailored curriculum. Most importantly, however, we are known for our ability to place students in top positions after graduation at firms like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, BNP Paribas, and many more.
If you’re considering a career in industry after the completion of your degree program or postdoctoral appointment, or if you wish to gain the skills to launch a finance career, the Berkeley MFE program wants to speak with you! We hold information sessions through the summer.  During our sessions, you will learn firsthand about the Berkeley MFE program from admissions staff and current students and alumni, and you will have the opportunity to participate in an on-the-spot resume review with executive director Linda Kreitzman.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our information sessions.  If you can’t join one of the information sessions listed below, we hold online information sessions biweekly.  You can see our full event schedule here:

Teach for America


I hope this email finds you well! I’m reaching out because Teach For America is currently hiring for our campus recruitment and outreach internship position – Campus Campaign Coordinator (CCC) at SJSU.

Our CCCs play a critical role in pipelining outstanding teachers and leaders into high needs classrooms and lifelong careers fighting for social justice. Also, many of our CCCs later apply to and join TFA after graduating because they seek to continue their impact on educational inequity. This opportunity is open to undergraduate students from all majors/fields of study. I am reaching out in hopes that you will share this opportunity with your students and networks.

Here are a couple resources where students can find additional information about the position, along with the online application.

Thank you in advance for sharing this opportunity with your students and for your continued support of educational equity.
