Mathematical Finance MSc


Course Description

This programme, taught jointly by the School of Mathematics and the Department of Economics, provides the skills that will enable technically able graduates (including in mathematics, science and engineering) to apply their quantitative training to financial analysis.

A collaboration with Advanced Risk and Portfolio Management allows MSc students to attend ARPM’s prestigious summer bootcamp at a discount; successful completion of ARPM’s bootcamp exempts students from our Risk Analytics module.

In most cases, we expect that graduates from the Masters will take positions in quantitative analysis (or similar) in major financial institutions, such as in the City. The programme also prepares you to pursue further studies in academia.
