Course content

Your programme of study

Many organisations particularly in the financial sector require quite complex financial transactions to be completed within their systems and databases internally and externally in order to provide the most up to date financial information to customers. Other organisations particularly within trading and investment areas, currencies and international organisations rely on modelling and scenarios to ensure their business models survive change. There are a lot of businesses and applications that require somebody with Financial Mathematics to set up systems which allow internal and external customers to see exact information whilst calculations go on behind the scenes. The insurance, pensions and domestic energy industries are good examples of business which requires a specific ability to provide advanced methods of calculation.

The programme gives you a rigorous method of acquiring vital skills which financial industries are looking for. You learn financial programme and work with big data sets used in the above industries, banking and many other industries. There is also a new industry which relies on these skills to programme IOT applications and devices which are used to similarly calculate within financial and statistical markets.
