MSc in Mathematical Finance (part-time)

Aims and Course Structure

Career relevance

The MSc aims to develop students' modelling, mathematical and computational skills in applications to finance. It covers the most important technical and quantitative aspects of finance in regular use in banks and other financial institutions, from basic material to current research. Material on related subjects is included to enable students to make intellectual links between different topics. There is a substantial transfer of technology from applied mathematics, pure mathematics, statistics, computing and corporate finance.
