About the course

Who is it for?

To successfully complete the Quantitative Finance course, you must have a good understanding of mathematics.

You may well have studied finance, economics, engineering or maths or physics as an undergraduate. Or you might have a bachelor’s degree in a science subject, in particular computer science.

You should have a general interest in mathematics and statistics, including the more quantitative and mathematical techniques used in financial markets; but you don’t need to have a background in finance.


You’ll study core modules focusing on asset pricing, risk management and introductions to key financial securities such as equities, fixed income securities and derivatives.
