To be competitive in our modern financial industry, it is not enough for a scientist to know how to write software, nor is it enough that one can mathematically analyse markets based on simplifying assumption by ignoring the computation required.
Our course will cover areas including:
- financial markets
- big data analytics
- python programming
Our course will give you both the theoretical and technical skills that are specific for the finance industry, as well as transferable skills such as the ability to develop and present an argument, and the ability to work independently and in groups.
The MSc Financial Technology (Computer Science) course at the University of Essex will equip you with the skillset at the intersection of computer science, economics and finance. You’ll gain expertise that is in high demand in the finance industry in the UK, and will become competitive in one of the primary recruiting sectors in the country and beyond.
With a skillset that combines both technical and analytical know-how from internationally known hubs within our University, our graduates will be able to find employment in very competitive financial institutions.
