The increasing "high-tech" character of modern business has increased the need for advanced methods, which rely, to a large extent, on mathematical techniques which seemingly are indispensable for competitiveness in the 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 certifies the quality of the MMF's program, which combines theoretical rigor with sectorial skills, balancing cutting-edge knowledge and research with contact with financial sector practices.
Internationalization is also a part of the MMF's history and aims. In 2014/15, MMF began to be lectured in English, which means that it can now be offered to a large international target audience. The international exchange through the ERASMUS program or other international agreements is also an option.
