Why should I study Mathematical Finance?

Graduates in Mathematical Finance benefit from excellent career prospects involving challenging tasks. These require a high level of mathematical and financial engineering skills which are acquired in this programme. Mathematical Finance is – notably in times of financial crisis – highly relevant for good governance and sharpens the judgement of decision makers.  The finance industry continually employs graduates as e.g. the so-called quants. Their sophisticated skills are in high demand, in particular as regulatory statutes become more and more complex.
