Designed to equip students with the skills needed to launch a successful career in finance, this MSc brings together the expertise of two academic departments and is taught by lecturers with considerable experience in investment banking and financial markets.

Students will learn to apply a wide range of mathematical and statistical techniques to model the behaviour of the financial markets. This rigorous training will prepare graduates for a career in fields such as quantitative analysis, trading, financial engineering and structuring, risk management, and software development.

Students will also gain a clear understanding of modern financial mathematics, together with a range of numerical and computational techniques that form an important part of the toolkit of a typical practitioner. This includes learning about the structure of financial instruments and the operations of the markets, foundations of mathematical modelling in finance, statistical techniques for analysing time series data, and introductory computer programming in C++.
