Our Mathematical Finance MSc programme is designed to provide you with the strong mathematical skills, computational techniques and finance background necessary to work in the finance sector. It could also open up careers in investment banking, hedge funds, insurance companies and the finance departments of large corporations.
Drawing on the expertise within our department of Mathematical Sciences, you will undertake core modules in stochastic analysis and measure theory, while also choosing optional modules covering wide-ranging topics of interest, including corporate finance, functional analysis and asset management.
In addition, the 14 weeks at the end of the programme are devoted to an individual project which you will complete under the supervision of your departmental supervisor.
As a student, you will benefit from our computing laboratory which boasts a dedicated IT team to help you with any computing queries. You will also benefit from the £4 million refurbished department of Mathematical Sciences building which has a spacious student activity area and dedicated state-of-the-art resources.
