At the Financial Mathematics MSc/PGDip offered at the Middlesex University you’ll develop the mathematical, financial and computational skills you need to make decisions; quantify and manage risks and balance risk with return; understand financial instruments; and evaluate and interpret financial data using programming and computer packages. You’ll also be able to source data from a range of different sources, including electronic databases.
There are five compulsory modules: portfolios and risk; probability and stochastic processes; risk measurement; financial data and computing; and pricing and stochastic calculus. You’ll then choose one further option from international risk management, time series and forecasting, and game and decision theories. At the end of the course you will submit a dissertation, which will allow you to gain in-depth knowledge of an area that interests you.
