The curriculum is oriented towards real-life applications and industrial problems in educational style and contents. The goal of the studies is the real-world applied mathematics education of specialists who are well prepared not only for work in international financial institutions or enterprises but also for any situation in which creative thinking is needed. The graduates have no problems with finding good jobs in the finance and insurance or industrial sectors in Poland and abroad. The MSc diploma offers an opportunity to continue education at Ph.D. studies. The programme offers four main specialties:
Financial and Actuarial Mathematics
Mathematics for Industry and Commerce
Modeling, Simulation, and Optimisation
The graduates will have obtained knowledge in mathematics and economics/finance; experience in pricing financial and actuarial contracts, modeling, simulation and optimisation, computational methods, and data science. They will be prepared for solving problems in the financial/actuarial and industrial sectors and gaining information from the literature and other sources. They will possess organisational skills and experience necessary for a professional career in research units, industry, and at universities and colleges.
