The globalisation of today’s financial markets has led to increased international competition and a growing need for employees with advanced skills. Candidates who combine a deep understanding of financial theory with strong quantitative skills are in high demand. Since companies today have access to large amounts of data, they need employees who can process and analyse financial data to make strategic decisions.
The Quantitative Finance programme offered by BI Norwegian Business School will provide you with the skills to assess problems, analyse them through advanced modelling, and make informed decisions. You will learn to use data and technology to better understand complex financial relationships and manage assets, evaluate risk factors, and maximize profitability.
What you will learn?
The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance programme provides you with both quantitative and programming skills from topics covering numerical analysis, stochastic models, statistics, and econometrics.
Along with the knowledge of finance that you gain, you will learn how to apply these advanced tools and be able to analyse complex financial instruments and contracts, analyse varied data sets for information extraction, as well as make forecasts and measure risk. This combination of knowledge and skills is what companies need in order to compete and succeed today.
