About

The Quantitative Finance and Risk Management program at EISTI Graduate Engineering School is primarily going to appeal to international students, "free movers" or those from our partner universities or for high-potential foreign engineers who are looking for an international career in the domain of finance.

Overview

The Quantitative Finance and Risk Management program at EISTI Graduate Engineering School draws on the recognized excellence of our engineering school in quantitative finance, and makes great use of the collaborations with the Universities of Paris-Dauphine and Cergy-Pontoise.

Objective

This Master’s degree covers the whole chain of quantitative finance, from theoretical aspects to the application in a professional setting. The chain can be described as follows:

  • Description of the market and financial products
  • Mathematical models of finance
  • Mathematical models of risk
  • Numerical resolution: computer-aided simulation
  • Calibration and asset evaluation

Specific details of the Master:

  • The Master came from the Financial Engineering option (IFI) taught at the EISTI for the last 13 years (all students from the option have found work as soon as their compulsory internships finished, and have an average salary 20% higher than the norm in this sector).
  • In and of itself, the Master is intrinsically international.
  • The theoretical teaching of this Master is very thorough, covering everything needed to know in the associated professions. As a consequence, the students are very adaptable within the work market.
  • The Master offers a 3-skilled approach, in Computer Science, Mathematics and Finance.

Accreditation

The program is accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
