The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance from Singapore Management University offers participants a unique learning journey in the realm of pricing & hedging, risk analytics & management, and quantitative trading & investment.
Participants can choose to embark on either the Singapore-based track or the International track. The former will lead to a master’s degree from SMU, while the latter, a joint master’s degree from SMU and Cass Business School.
With both schools situated in the heart of the two financial hubs of the world, there are ample opportunities for a new generation of quant professionals to make a difference in the financial industry. In addition to providing students with an international perspective of global financial markets and instruments, course contents are also customised to take into account the characteristics of Asian milieu. A unique feature of our MQF is the exposure to many opportunities to design and implement quantitative trading strategies.
The mission of the MQF programme is to produce high-quality professionals who will be highly sought after by global and regional banks, quantitative hedge funds, asset management companies, as well as regulators in Singapore.
As the global financial industry is getting more sophisticated in risk management, product innovation, and proprietary trading, the demand for quantitative finance professionals is on the rise.
