About / Academic Affiliate Members

In January 2011, the IAQF launched its Academic Affiliate Membership, which is open to masters level academic programs conferring a degree in Quantitative Finance or similarly named concentration, including Financial Engineering, Mathematical Finance, and Computational Finance.

By becoming officially affiliated with the IAQF, Academic Affiliate Members bring international visibility to their programs and provide unique opportunities for their students and directors to connect with the organization. Students and administrators of Academic Affiliate programs receive a variety of member benefits, including:

  • Complimentary individual IAQF memberships for up to three professors or academic adminitrators
  • Membership in IAQF for all current students
  • One seat for a program faculty member at the IAQF Financial Engineer of the Year (FEOY) Award Dinner
  • Highlighted as an Academic Affiliate member in FEOY event programs, on the IAQF website and program directory
  • Discounted student admission to the National Financial Mathematics Career Fair
  • Invitation to participate in the IAQF’s annual academic paper competition
  • Invitation for students to enter the IAQF’s Hackathon, beginning in 2017
