Course summary

The MSc in Mathematics and Finance is designed to prepare you for a wide range of careers in quantitative finance and risk management. Mathematical finance is a subject that is both mathematically challenging and deployed every day by sophisticated practitioners in the financial markets. This course provides you with everything you need to get into this area at a level where you can understand – and contribute to – industry practice and the latest research. Scientific computing (object-orientated programming in C++) is an integral part of the programme.

This course is suited to recent graduates in mathematical science and engineering, but we also welcome applications from candidates already employed in the financial services sector looking to expand their skills. You study four core modules in the autumn term and three core modules in the spring term. The five optional modules are taken alongside this in either, or both, of the autumn and spring terms. You submit coursework throughout the two terms and sit your exam in January and April/May. The supervised research project takes place over the summer when modules have been completed. You work with an academic supervisor and sponsor to scope out the project at the start. You submit the project in September. Part-time students take the core modules in the autumn and spring terms of year one and two. The optional modules are also taken alongside the core modules in both years. Research project work starts in the summer terms of years one and two and is submitted in September of year two.

Graduates are equipped with the skills needed to pursue careers in the field of quantitative finance and risk management. Previous graduates have gone on to roles such as Financial Analyst, Quantitative Analyst and Risk Management Analyst.
