MSc Financial Mathematics


Course Description

Our suite of Finance Master’s degrees brings you a deep theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance and related quantitative skills, which will prepare you for a range of careers in global financial institutions and blue-chip companies. Our postgraduates are highly employable in a wide range of roles. The skills they acquire at WBS open up opportunities to work for banks and treasuries, asset managers, regulators and consultancies, policy-makers and many others.

Course Details

Six core modules cover key material in finance, statistics and maths. Every year we offer many elective modules, available through various study routes: delivered here at WBS. Please note that availability and delivery modes may vary.

Modules are taught by staff from WBS, Warwick's Department of Statistics, and the Mathematics Institute through a combination of lectures, classes, and computer lab sessions. A one-week induction module, run by the Mathematics Institute, will ensure you have the mathematical prerequisites for the course. Assessment is a mix of exams and coursework with your dissertation bringing all your learning together at the end.

Lectures & classes

Lectures introduce key theories, concepts, and economic models. You will solve financial problems and numerical exercises, analyse case studies, and make presentations of research published in academic journals.

Lab work

Lab work will give you hands-on experience of using software to perform finance-related calculations and conduct realistic simulations. Econometric methods are also taught in the lab, so you will learn to apply econometric software to empirical research and financial market estimations.

Your dissertation

A 10,000 word dissertation gives you the opportunity to test and apply techniques and theories you have been learning and to complete an original piece of research. You will be supervised and supported by one of our academic staff.
