Financial Mathematics

Financial Mathematics is a field of applied mathematics, which is basically tied to financial markets. This is where numerical models are derived with a financial theory being linked with market prices as inputs. Understanding the probabilistic nature of the financial world requires quality analysis and measure of derivatives in every financial model. The course opens the students’ mind to the approach of the financial markets.

Master in Financial Accounting degree has become a reliable field when analyzing the world of market prices. Every market comes with chances of either losing or gaining money. It is for this reason that the study of financial mathematics will help realize the risk measures to take before venturing. The course helps understand the uncertainty situations of the market and how to approach them. Students learn quality ways of making effective financial decisions as far as market prices are concerned. This is how deciding fair prices will be understood through financial mathematics.

A Masters degree in Financial Mathematics exam will develop the candidate’s level of understanding on the fundamental concepts in financial mathematics. The syllabus exposes students to the application of present calculations and other cash flow streams of the future in pricing, reserving, liability/asset management, valuation, capital budgeting, and investment income. The course will leave students ready to handle corporate financial institutions and government institution books with expertise. There are no requirements of a business background before enrollment but some calculus basis is a prerequisite.

First Year of Graduate Studies:

The first year of Graduate Studies (Diplôme Universitaire), MMEF - Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance, is a one-year, full-time, international program that is taught in English. The courses correspond to those taught in the first year of Graduate Studies, which in the Bologna European Academic System is the first year M1 of the Masters. The courses derive from pre-existing courses at the university, with intensive courses in French.

The degree is devoted to the training of students in the use of mathematical models in economics and finance: mathematical economics, strategic analysis, decision theory, stochastic models, mathematical finance, and optimization models. The training is built around a large spectrum of courses, which aim to give the knowledge for the modelization of economic and financial problems, for mathematical formalization and tools for the numerical solutions. The new models in finance, economics and decision theory need a coherent training in these fields.... [-]
