Course content

Financial mathematics uses sophisticated mathematical methods and advanced computer technology to predict the behaviour of markets and suggest strategies for investment. A solid command of its principles and techniques is essential for anyone working in trading, pricing, hedging, asset management, risk control and a variety of other areas of finance: in-depth analysis and forecasts cannot be done otherwise, and the 2008 recession has highlighted the need for careful management of the world’s financial markets. This is a skill which gives you the chance to work in a dynamic, constantly changing field and contribute to decisions which can have a global impact.

We believe strongly that the work you do must be relevant to the world of work – that’s why our course has a strong practical slant. It also has the unusual and significant advantage of including from-scratch training in computer programming, allowing you to develop first-class computing skills alongside your mathematical expertise.
