Mathematical and Computational Finance


University of Oxford    Mathematical Institute

Full time September MSc 10 months

About the course

The course provides you with a strong mathematical background with the skills necessary to apply your expertise to the solution of real finance problems. You will develop skills so that you are able to formulate a well posed problem from a description in financial language, carry out relevant mathematical analysis, develop and implement an appropriate numerical scheme and present and interpret these results.

The course lays the foundation for further research in academia or for a career as a quantitative analyst in a financial or other institution.

You will take three introductory courses in the first week. The introductory courses cover partial differential equations, probability and statistics and MATLAB.
