Do you have an aptitude and passion for mathematics and statistics, a keen interest in finance and insurance and want to work for a major financial organisation in finance, insurance or the money market? This course will provide you with a deep understanding of the world of finance, and give you the ability to speak its 'language'. This course combines theory with hands-on practical skills via an industry placement or research project – ensuring you graduate with the right skills increasingly being sought by banks and other financial institutions.

The Master of Financial Mathematics offers advanced training in the core areas of stochastic, financial and insurance modelling, statistical analysis and computational methodology, as well as in a wide range of elective topics from economics, econometrics, finance, mathematics and probability.

Graduates of this course are likely to enter specialist careers in research departments within banks, insurance and consultancy firms or derivatives of valuation and portfolio management within investment houses.

The School of Mathematical Sciences sits within the leading Faculty of Science at Monash University. This vibrant, dynamic and successful School is undergoing a period of growth with the appointment of several new senior academic staff including Professor Gregoire Loeper, Course Director for the Masters of Financial Mathematics. With mathematics as the fundamental underpinning of so many subject areas, sectors and disciplines, the School is also building ever stronger collaborations with relevant industries, including the financial sector.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three Parts. Part A. Orientation studies, Part B. Specialist studies, Part C. Applied professional practice. All students complete Part B. Depending upon prior qualifications, you may receive credit for Part A or Part C or a combination of the two.

Part A. Orientation studies
These studies provide an orientation to the field of Financial Mathematics. You will choose studies that complement your current knowledge relevant to financial mathematics, including principles of econometrics, mathematical methods and stochastic processes.

Part B. Specialist studies
These studies will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills relevant to thoughtful, innovative and evidence-based practice in financial modelling and analysis. You will acquire core knowledge of and skills in financial econometrics, and advanced mathematical modelling and computational methods in finance. You will complement these with study in areas of your choice, including interest rate modelling, Markov processes, statistical learning in finance, and global financial markets.

Part C. Applied professional practice
These studies will provide you with the opportunity to apply your knowledge skills developed in Part A and B to "real life" problems, through completing an industry project or an industry internship. Students admitted to the course who have a recognised honours degree or graduate diploma or graduate certificate in a cognate discipline including mathematics or statistics, will receive credit for this part however, should they wish to complete a 24 point research project as part of Part B they should consult with the course convenor.

About Mathematical Sciences

The School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University is leading the way towards finding effective solutions to some of society's most pressing problems. Maths is the language of science and forms the basis of most of modern science and engineering. Our enthusiastic mathematicians love finding the true magic and beauty in maths and subsequently pass this passion on to their students.

Teaching

Studying maths equips you with a range of valuable, unique skills. Some of the exciting areas mathematicians at Monash are working on include mathematical modelling to predict behaviour, analysis using pure maths, and stochastic processes involving risk, randomness and change.

Mathematics and statistics are also the two cornerstones for decision making and various quantitative activities in commerce, industry, education and defence. From direct and daily experience, most companies and organisations have realised that success depends critically on the level of analytical, quantitative and statistical skills of their workforce and they therefore seek employees with a sound mathematical training.

By studying mathematics at Monash, you will also develop general skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, modelling, learning, analysis, research and creativity, which can be used wherever your career may take you.

Research

The School of Mathematical Sciences focuses on these main areas of research:

- Applied and Computational Mathematics
- Pure Mathematics
- Stochastic Processes
