Why Study Financial Computing? Financial institutions are under considerable pressure to increase their computational capabilities. This is the result of increased regulatory requirements, new electronic and algorithmic trading channels as well as increased competition for speed and accuracy. This critical capability is delivered by a combination of mathematics, technology and finance.
As a result there is growing demand for numerate and technologically capable personnel from a wide range of top employers including investment banks, hedge funds, financial software companies, brokerage firms and consultancy firms. Other business lines are now developing similar paradigms where numerate, technologically able personnel are part of business innovation and decision-making.
This unique programme provides numerate graduates with the expertise to develop a professional career in this profitable and intellectually exciting field. It has been designed to match the requirements of top employers in the industry.
Access to Expertise The MSc in Financial Computing is directed and has been designed by Dr Sebastian del Bano Rollin former Global Head of FX Quantitative Research at Citigroup amongst other senior roles in the financial industry.
Get Industry Experience The Financial Computing MSc can be enhanced with a one year industry placement that will allow you to gain valuable industry expertise.
