I finish my MS in Quantitative Management in May 2023. I am potentially interested in pursuing a graduate certificate in one of the following fields: Statistics, Operations Research, or Financial Engineering. I know I do not want to do a third masters degree and finding grad certs in these fields is difficult (aside from statistics). These are what I have narrowed things down to: Statistics Graduate Certificates: NC State University https://statistics.sciences.ncsu.edu/graduate/online-programs/applied-statistics-and-data-management-certificate/ Texas A&M, College Station https://online.stat.tamu.edu/certificate-options/ Missouri University of Science and Tech https://online.missouri.edu/degrees-programs/mst/arts-sciences-education/statistics/grad-cert Operations Research Graduate Certificate: Western New England University https://www1.wne.edu/academics/graduate/graduate-operations-research-certificate.cfm Financial Engineering Graduate Certificates: Penn State World Campus https://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/degrees-and-certificates/penn-state-online-financial-engineering-certificate/overview Missouri University of Science and Tech https://online.missouri.edu/degrees-programs/mst/kummer/financial-engineering/grad-cert So far, I have applied to NC State and Missouri S&T for their Statistics Grad Certs and then WNE for their Operations Research Grad Cert. Ultimately, I doubt I would use any of them for professional purposes. The field of financial engineering is highly competitive and usually reserved for folks with PhD's from top tier universities. I am leaning towards Statistics or Operations Research because they tie in nicely with my Quantitative Management degree. Any input/advice? Any other Stats or OR grad certs that you all know of?
