The MSc in Financial Mathematics gives you the tools necessary to undertake high quality research in both financial and academic institutions.
As such, you will be equipped for roles involving the development of pricing and risk management models and their testing, or for a career as a risk analyst or quantitative analyst.
You will acquire an in-depth knowledge and understanding of financial mathematics. This will include financial mathematical theory and modelling, along with probability theory and programming which is then applied for asset pricing, modelling interest rates and risk management.
This programme is rigorous with respect to the mathematics but also places great emphasis on linking theory with real world developments. You will often be exposed to the teaching of real world practitioners from the City of London.
Cass's proximity to the City of London, and our close links to many of its institutions, will help you to access outstanding networking and career opportunities.
Many graduates from the MSc in Financial Mathematics progress to one of two fields:
- derivatives valuation and portfolio management within investment houses
- research departments within banks and consultancy firms
