I currently work for a firm in Chicago that specializes in algorithmic trading. Accordingly, I've been thinking about going back to school for some further education in this area. Thus far, I've looked at comp. sci. and financial engineering programs at U. of Chicago and Northwestern, and I've looked at IIT master's program in finance, where you can specialize in financial engineering and programming. To me, it seems like the IIT program is best, due to its focus, but I was just curious if anyone on this board had any experiences with these or related programs. If so, I'd like to hear your opinions. Thanks.
