Overview

Ambitious students with an educational background in Economics, Finance or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects and with a proven quantitative talent will be ideally suited to this programme.

This course covers a broad range of subjects related to the mathematical modelling of financial markets and the pricing and hedging of financial securities. The course equips you with the necessary theoretical, mathematical and computational skills needed to pursue a career in quantitative finance. If you are a competitive student looking for a career in finance that will use your quantitative talents to the full, this is the course for you.

For graduates wishing to pursue further the theoretical dimension to the discipline, the curriculum content provides the perfect basis for a Ph.D. in Finance.

The course was awarded Risk Management Accreditation by the Professional Risk Managers International Association (PRMIA), confirming the suitability of the course for preparing graduates for a career as professional risk managers. Graduating students obtain exemptions to PRMIA level 1 and 2 exams.

The programme can be undertaken on a part-time basis, thus enabling current professionals with the relevant background to combine working life with study. However, if you are in full-time employment, employer support is essential to undertake the part-time option as it requires class attendance and some work on group assignments during the working day.
