'Quants' (development analysts) design and implement complex models and are sought after by banks, fund managers, insurance companies, hedge funds, and financial software and data providers.
This Computational Finance programme offered at the University College London (UCL) comprises advanced modules on quantitative and modelling skills, which are essential for 'quant' roles in trading research, regulation and risk. This applied MSc programme is distinctive in that it provides a solid mathematical and statistical foundation together with an education in advanced-level programming.
This is a relatively new programme and therefore no specific information on graduate destinations is currently available. UCL Computer Science graduates typically find work in financial institutions such as Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and Deutsche Bank as financial analyst application developers, quant developers, and business managers. The University of Cambridge and UCL are among top further study destinations.
Our graduates are particularly valued as a result of the department's international reputation, strong links with industry, and ideal location close to the City of London. Graduates are especially sought after by leading finance companies and organisations.
