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.
About the School of Mathematics
The School of Mathematics is one of seven schools in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. The school is situated in the Watson Building on the main Edgbaston campus of the University of Birmingham. There are about 50 academic staff, 15 research staff, 10 support staff, 60 postgraduate students and 600 undergraduate students. At the School of Mathematics we take the personal development and careers planning of our students very seriously. Jointly with the University of Birmingham's Careers Network we have developed a structured programme to support maths students with their career planning from when they arrive to when they graduate and beyond.
