QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnQuoteYou cannot develop enough math in 6 classes during an MSWow! Do CS educations do maths? Or do they call it maths?Realistically, at least States-side, math classes in CS programs tend to be not as rigorous as in the Math department for Math undergrad or Math grad programs. I have rarely found someone with a CS degree who understands measure theory. It is one thing to say "dW^2 = dt" and get on with life and another to actually understand the topic.It is better for OP to go into this with realistic expectations. The hiring managers for "derivative pricing in banks" will look at the resume and say "CS undergrad, 6 years web developer, CS MS with Math minor" == IT, and pack him off to the group that books trades or maintains those systems.Better to pick up some statistics, avoid banks altogether and go off to buy side, where programmer, quant and trader are more fungible.
