The MSc Mathematical Finance course at the University of Warwick enables you to develop and apply the quantitative skills in machine learning, computational statistics and mathematical finance used in the financial markets and the finance industry. 


Challenge yourself with the MSc Mathematical Finance course taught at University of Warwick with a high-level mix of mathematic and finance disciplines taught by three of the University’s top departments: Statistics, Mathematics and Warwick Business School.

Build on your strong mathematical background to gain both a deep theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance, together with the requisite high-level probability, statistics and mathematics, to enable you to undertake advanced quantitative modelling. Lab work will give you hands-on experience of using software packages for simulations and time series analysis, as well as learning programming for quantitative finance in three core languages: Python, C++ and R.

Our departments benefit from excellent links to key financial institutions and employers, and this course has benefited from industry recommendations.


Graduates from these courses have gone on to work for employers including: HSBC, LLoyds Banking Group, UBS and Goldman Sachs. They have pursued roles such as: Equity Traders, Quantitative Analysts, Market Rish Analysts and Senior Investment Analysts.

General requirements

  • Our MSc Mathematical Finance is a highly specialised and technical programme, and is, as such, mathematically quite challenging.  
  • To succeed on this course, you will need strong ability in Mathematics and Finance, and some experience in Statistics or Econometrics, evidenced by a good 2:1 or first in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics or another relevant quantitatively-focused undergraduate degree.  
  • A clear emphasis in your choice of undergraduate electives on the aforementioned areas will strengthen your application.  
  • Given the fast pace of the course, it is strongly recommended that you undertake preliminary reading before the start of the course if you have little or no background in areas such as Measure-Theoretic Probability, Statistics, and Financial Economics. Before you join the course, we will make reading recommendations and other materials available via our dedicated pre-arrival pages.
