This programme is aimed at graduates whose level of mathematical training is high, but below that of the BSc Degree Honours in Mathematics or Mathematical Physics, and who have demonstrated mathematical flair. It enables them to reach in one year a level of mathematical knowledge equivalent to that of BSc Honours graduates and thus, in particular, qualifies them to enter the MSc degree in Mathematics, Mathematical Physics or Mathematical Sciences. ### Students in the programme choose one of two streams:

The Applied and Computational Mathematics Stream

The Mathematics Stream

The programme extends over two semesters and involves 60 credits of taught modules.

This programme runs full time for one academic year - September to May (2 semesters)

This programme runs part time for two academic years - September to May (4 semesters)

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance attracts numerate, competitive students seeking careers in finance that stretch their quantitative talents.

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance attracts numerate, competitive students seeking careers in finance that stretch their quantitative talents. The two-year full-time programme provides an integrated and balanced curriculum of finance and computational methods that accommodates students of diverse backgrounds.

The 4-semester programme comprises 18 courses, an internship and a major project. The curriculum gives students the knowledge and skills to develop quantitative security pricing models and trading strategies for managing portfolios of equity, fixed income and derivative securities and for managing corporate financial risk.

Programme structure

The MScQF is a small programme limited to about 20 students per year. The design of the curriculum presumes relatively little prior training in either finance or mathematics. The two-year full-time MScQF integrates the content of the one-year MBS in Finance with nearly the

equivalent of a masters in applied financial mathematics. The two-year structure affords the opportunity for a summer internship with a financial firm, a crucial component of the entire training and job-hunting process.

Assessment is by both examination and project work.

Careers

Career options for MScQF graduates include funds management, investment banking, financial engineering, and corporate treasury management. The MScQF also provides the recommended coursework component of the PhD in Finance at

UCD, leading to careers in academia as well as the finance industry.

Entry requirements

Appropriate degree fields include mathematical finance, economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and physics. As relatively little prior formal training in mathematics is presumed, we welcome applications from quantitatively inclined graduates from a standard commerce programme. Generally, applicants must have high grades and a high score on the mathematics component of the GMAT (or an equivalent test). Work experience can partially compensate for non-competitive grades.
