State Street Global Markets
I spent most of my time learning about FX trading and Macro Strategy when I underwent my 6-month internship at State Street Global Markets, an internship that granted me exposure to the real world of business. This was a lot different than a summer internship in which hypothetical case studies are assigned; instead, I was actually assisting the traders in building monitoring tools to help them trade. The financial knowledge and the quantitative skills I gained from QFRM certainly equipped me to excel in these duties. I believe this is the edge that the QFRM student enjoys: you have the flexibility to get exposure to both sides, and this has proven to be extremely beneficial.
