A collaboration with Advanced Risk and Portfolio Management (ARPM) allows students of the Mathematical Finance programme offered by the University of Birmingham to attend ARPM's prestigious summer ARPM Bootcamp at a discount.
Attending this class also gives an access to the ARPM Lab, an online platform that contains an extensivebody of knowledge for quantitative risk management and quantitative portfolio management. Successful completion of it exempts students from our Risk Analytics module.
In most cases, we expect that graduates from the Masters will take positions in quantitative analysis (or similar) in major financial institutions, such as in the City. The programme also prepares you to pursue further studies in academia.
Graduates from this Mathematical Finance programme offered by the University of Birmingham will be well prepared to compete for quantitatively demanding positions in financial institutions. The degree should also prepare them for postgraduate research, either for purely academic ends or to further qualify them for work in financial institution.
Destinations of recent graduates include Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas, China Jianyin Investment Securities, Deutsche Bank, the FSA, LGIM, Société Générale and wonga.com.
