About

The Finance (Quantitative Finance) programme from SOAS University of London has been created principally for postgraduates whose work in banks and other financial institutions requires a knowledge of statistical (particularly econometric) and quantitative approaches to risk and derivatives.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Finance (Quantitative Finance) programme from SOAS University of London is particularly suitable if you have a first degree in engineering, applied science, applied mathematics, economics, or similar subjects, but is also suitable for others with quantitative skills.

Students will also become acquainted with the main issues and methods in Corporate Finance, Risk Management, Financial Engineering, and Financial Econometrics. The programme will present Finance as a scientific discipline with a rigorous methodology, but at the same time will describe the way financial markets and institutions actually work in a variety of contexts.

Our teaching offers you exceptional insights into financial institutions and markets in London and other major cities in the world.

In addition, we offer specialist knowledge of financial and management systems in the emerging markets of Africa, Asia and the Middle East – something that will set you apart from graduates of other universities that normally focus on the analysis of Europe and the Americas.

You will develop an excellent understanding of key issues shaping international business strategy in a global financial environment.
