On our MSc Algorithmic Trading, we equip you with the core concepts and quantitative methods in high frequency finance, along with the operational skills to use state-of-the-art computational methods for financial modelling. We enable you to attain an understanding of financial markets at the level of individual trades occurring over sub-millisecond timescales, and apply this to the development of real-time approaches to trading and risk-management. In addition to traditional topics in financial econometrics and market microstructure theory, we put special emphasis on statistical and computational methods for modelling trading strategies and predictive services that are deployed by hedge funds, algorithmic trading groups, derivatives desks, and risk management departments.
