Course content

The MSc Financial Mathematics focuses on stochastics and simulation techniques, but also covers some econometrics. You’ll study core modules covering asset pricing, risk management and an introduction to key financial securities such as equities, fixed income and derivatives.

You’ll cover a wide range of elementary and advanced topics in stochastics, including Levy processes and different simulation techniques. You’ll be taught Matlab and VBA and you have the opportunity to learn other programming languages as part of our electives offering, such as Python or C++.

There are three ways to complete the third term. Either you’ll choose five electives from around 40 optional modules in your final term. Or you can choose to complete a traditional dissertation, known as a ‘business research project’, which counts for four electives, or a shorter ‘applied research project’, which is the equivalent of two elective modules.
