Master (MSC) In Mathematical Finance

ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics & Management

Increasing the "high-tech" character of modern business has Increased the need for advanced methods, Which rely, to a large extent, on mathematical techniques Which are seemingly indispensable for competitiveness in industry.

Launched in 2007/08 under the Bologna process, the Masters in Mathematical Finance Has Been offered every year ever since then. It was created as a Developing and innovative project in Portugal, Which Followed the standards of European universities.

A3ES accreditation in 2013 certifiés the quality of the MMF's program, Which combines theoretical rigor with sectoral skills, balancing cutting-edge knowledge and research with contact with financial sector practices.

The AIMS program to Develop students' mathematical and computational skills, combined with financial modeling, and Provides a thorough education in modern mathematical finance. During the fourth semester, students can opt for an internship in a financial company, or can choose to write a thesis or a project.

As a result, our Masters students are readily employed by prestigious financial companies (banks, consultancy, insurance and investment companies). "Several of our alumni are MMF Currently studying for a PhD, either in Portugal, or abroad, and some have already completed Their PhD."

The Following developments are of importance:
The establishment of an international agreement Involving three Masters in the area of ​​Mathematical Finance - from ISEG; Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France, and; Ekonomiczny Uniwersytet w Poznaniu, Poland, Which Allows students to study for part of Their These degree at universities; The direct connection / PARTNERSHIP of the Masters in Mathematical Finance with the SYMMYS Advanced Risk and Portfolio Management BOOTCAMP at the University of New York http://symmys.com/arpm-bootcamp/, whereby students who participated in this bootcamp Obtain an ARPM certificate and can earn additional credits / benefits / a supplement for Their Masters Diploma.

The Masters Program AIMS to Develop students' mathematical and computational skills, combined with financial modeling. In studying for our Masters, students are Confronted with the most important technical and quantitative topics of finance, theoretical and applied BOTH, ranging from the mathematical background to the latest trends in the financial sector.

The Masters in Mathematical Finance AIMS TO:

Form quantitative analysts with a strong knowledge of analytical, statistical, and computational tools, Which can be applied to financial modeling; Contribute to the top level of education practitioners with leadership ability, who are capable of Promoting innovation; Promote scientific research and innovation in Applied Mathematics of education and support the University teachers Whose of research activity in the areas of Financial Mathematics are relevant for the University, in collaboration with the business world.
