Course content

Our MSc in Mathematics and Finance is designed to prepare you for a wide range of careers in quantitative finance and risk management.

Mathematical finance is a subject that is both mathematically challenging and deployed every day by sophisticated practitioners in the financial markets.

This course provides you with everything you need to get into this area at a level where you can understand – and contribute to – industry practice and the latest research.

To achieve this, our modules are broad and cover both the necessary finance and economics background, and instruction in fundamental mathematics, including stochastic analysis, and partial differential equations.

Scientific computing (object-orientated programming in C++) is an integral part of the programme.

This course is suited to recent graduates in mathematical science and engineering, but we also welcome applications from candidates already employed in the financial services sector looking to expand their skills.
