Course summary

Course description

Quantitative finance is widely recognised as a rapidly expanding market for mathematical and scientific skills. Financial Mathematics is an application of mathematical methods to financial markets and risk management, using advanced computer technology to predict the behaviour of the markets and suggest strategies for investment. The focus of this MSc is on computational techniques for finance, on mathematical modelling and on mathematical and economic theories of finance.

On this course you will learn how to formulate problems from finance in mathematical terms, select and develop an appropriate numerical method, use programming skills to implement the method and compute results, and finally to present and interpret these results for a potential client.

What's the difference?

If you complete the modules but not the project, you will qualify for a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip). If you complete only some of the modules, you may qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert).
