Economic Studies

The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.

Professionals who have studied economics and administration comprehend both the larger economic picture and smaller, individualized trends. It is an interdisciplinary field in which specialists are trained to consider and analyze many components in both the public and private section and make recommendations based on current and potential conditions.

 

Nothing helps scholars grow like exposure to a diverse set of ideals and backgrounds and that’s just what any student will get in the Middle East. From ancient civilizations to modern day cultures, scholars have the opportunity to experience new things in this region.

Financial Mathematics is the branch of applied mathematics concerned with the financial markets. It overlaps heavily with the fields of financial engineering and computational finance. Arguably, all three terms are synonymous. The subject naturally has a close relationship with the discipline of financial economics, but financial mathematics is narrower in scope and more abstract. A central difference is that while a financial economist might study the structural reasons why a company may have a certain share price, a mathematician or financial engineer may take the share price as a given, and attempt to use stochastic calculus to obtain the fair value of derivatives of the stock.

Financial Mathematics is a flourishing area of modern science. Its numerous applications have become vital to the day to day functioning of the world’s financial institutions. As a consequence, a solid command of the principles and techniques of quantitative finance is essential for a responsible approach to the trading, asset management, and risk control of complicated financial positions....
