Overview

Stochastic models are intensively used in financial institutions and insurance companies. In addition to model specifications, accurate statistical methods are crucial for estimation, calibration and forecasting. This trend has recently been accentuated by the rise of data science and machine learning.

The Statistics, Finance and Actuarial Science Master’s program aims to train high-level specialists in the fields of random modelling and risk management to meet the needs of all types of financial institutions including banks, insurance companies, asset managers and hedge funds.

To achieve this ambitious goal, a strong level in probability and statistics is required.

The curriculum is organized around core courses in time series, machine learning, risk management, actuarial science and mathematical finance.
