What employers say about MMF talent
“The University of Toronto’s Master of Mathematical Finance internship program has been a wonderful partner for OPTrust. Recently, we had the pleasure of working with Chloe Wei whose collaborative working style and strong coding skills made her a great addition to the team during her term at OPTrust. The program has been a resource for talent like Chloe and multiple program alumni continue to be valued members of our team. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the years to come.”
