The MSc in Financial and Computational Mathematics at the University of Nottingham is a branch of mathematics where advanced mathematical and statistical methods are developed for and applied to financial markets and financial management. Its main aims are to quantify and hedge risks in the financial marketplace.
Applicants should have a solid background in mathematics including calculus, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations and basic techniques used in probability and statistics.
Effective computational methods are crucial for the successful use of mathematical modelling in finance. This course is designed to reflect this combination of knowledge and skills so that graduates are well equipped to enter the competitive job markets of quantitative finance and related fields. Optional modules also equip graduates with foundations of data analytics.
Careers and professional development
This course offers a solid grounding in financial mathematics and will prepare you for quantitative roles in banks and other financial institutions dealing with risk analysis and management.
The course also provides training suitable for admission on PhD programmes in financial mathematics and quantitative finance. You will gain experience of the type of problems encountered by academic and qualitative practitioners, both via taught courses and project work on an individual and group basis.
