Overview

The globalisation of today’s financial markets has led to increased international competition and a growing need for employees with advanced skills.

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.
