MSc in Mathematical Finance


Course Description

Sophisticated financial markets continue to play an essential role in the economies of the modern world, and a career in the finance and banking industry can be exciting, intellectually challenging and highly lucrative.

In spite of recent turmoil in this sector, there is still strong demand for well-qualified individuals. Areas such as quantitative analysis and risk management are now as important as ever. However, there is an increased importance that professionals working in areas such as trading, sales and financial engineering also have a solid understanding of the mathematical models (and their limitations) that are used to price and risk-manage the financial products that are traded.

This specialised programme is aimed at both new graduates and current professionals. It has been designed to provide you with the necessary mathematical tools and techniques to understand and model the complexity of financial markets, thereby enabling you to develop a successful career in the finance industry. With this programme you will:

Understand many of the advanced mathematical models used in finance
Learn about a range of important numerical tools and techniques used in the field
Gain practical skills in computer programming and software design
Undertake a substantial project, under expert supervision, in a chosen area of interest

(Student Profile)

Brendan O'Neill

1463.JPG Why did you choose Queen Mary for your postgraduate study?

Being uncertain about my future career, it was important for me to have a good variety of modules on offer for my MSc and to get a taste of many different subjects and career paths at once. When I looked at QMUL, I was very impressed by their wide variety of modules on offer and the fact that they have one of the largest mathematics departments in the UK. One nice thing about studying at QMUL is that we are also allowed to take modules at other universities that are part of the University of London, so we are spoilt for choice really.

What in particular do you enjoy about your course/School of Mathematical Sciences?

I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to get everything I wanted out of my MSc. In my first semester, I followed a refresher module on statistics and then tried new subjects such as actuarial mathematics and financial mathematics. I also perfected my programming skills as part of a scientific computing module. All in all, it was more than I hoped for from one institution. The general support and advice from the programme coordinator and his open door policy also made a huge difference to me.

What are your career plans after you graduate?

I am currently looking for work in actuarial science and finance. The careers office at QMUL has been really helpful in offering advice on how and where to look for jobs.
