SAMPLE SOP FOR FINANCIAL ENGINEERING
| Sample SOP for Financial Engineering- This a Statement of Purpose of a student who got admitted to GaTech for the Masters in FE program. |
Being a spectator of the events unfolding in the Eurozone and in the US, I am quite intrigued at the web of interconnectivity of all financial markets, whether it is commodities, equities, metals or currency. These markets in the recent past seem to be behaving in a similar manner, experiencing significant volatility and price movement. Having traded equities for the past few years, it is even more imperative in today’s climate that trading decisions should not be based on beliefs and hope but on a systematic approach with strict stop losses. As I look at various options for a career, I am clear that I would like to continue trading but with more extensive knowledge of quantitative models, methods and algorithms. In this regard, I look forward to a Masters in Operations Research and Information Engineering with Financial Engineering concentration from Georgia Institute of Technology to gain a holistic understanding of various concepts in finance and statistics and blend them with my mathematical, programming and analytical skills.
