Programme overview

The Advanced Master in Quantitative Finance offers prospective students a rich curriculum combining finance, statistics, econometrics, programming and mathematics. This Master guarantees a full coverage of financial disciplines, such as asset and derivative pricing, numerical methods and programming skills. This advanced course work is designed for students with a quantitative background, obtained either from recent education or through professional experience.

Programme objectives

The main objective of this master is to train a new generation of quants. You will gain cutting-edge knowledge in quantitative finance and will learn how to apply it to real-life problems.

You will not only be exposed to up-to-date models, but you will also understand their advantages and limitations, both in theory and in practice.

By the end of the year, you will be able to:

• Become an analyst and/or manager in a quant group

• Price equities and bonds

• Construct and programme structured products

• Perform tail-risk analysis

• Extract information from massive databases

• Understand and trade in complex derivative products such as volatility derivatives

Job opportunities

The obvious companies for such profiles are large financial institutions, private banking, and hedge funds, seeking to fulfil positions like quant team member, risk manager, quant analyst/risk modeller, asset liability manager, derivatives specialist, financial supervisor and product structure.

Geographically, job opportunities are not only concentrated to Europe, in particular London, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Zurich, but are extended to the rest of the world (e.g. Singapore, Hong Kong and New York).

However, to successfully grow in your professional life and make the right choices for your career, it is fundamental to define your goals and have the tools to achieve them. The Solvay Brussels School’s career service will help you in building your career thanks to its strong connection with the business sector and to its dynamic team who will accompany each participant into the professional world. From self-assessment to networking opportunities, our team will assist participants to realise their full potential.
