The curriculum of the online Financial Mathematics program at Johns Hopkins University consists of courses that focus on developing advanced quantitative and managerial skills in finance, while examining the engineering-driven principles that power our global economy. Students have the opportunity to study real-world examples in subjects like financial derivatives, risk management, data analysis, Monte Carlo methods, and quantitative portfolio theory. Graduates of the program typically seek higher-level management positions at top-tier financial firms.
Upon completing the degree program, students will:
- Be equipped with the engineering-driven approaches widely used to construct and deploy the financial transactions and processes that, in their context, function as the international financial system and capital markers (i.e., the mechanisms enabling the creation/employment of wealth and for the worldwide distribution of well-being within the constraints and intent of global financial policy).
- Be provided with the educational background to pursue increasingly responsible management roles in industry.
- Be prepared to enter leadership positions in the financial industry and government where they will use their quantitative skills and creativity to provide innovative solutions and develop new or improved products and services.

The principal criteria for financial aid are academic credentials, language and communication skills, and teaching performance and experience. Financial need is generally not considered, except in the awarding of tuition waivers. For incoming students, the academic credentials evaluation is based on grades, recommendation letters, mathematical background, GRE scores, and TOEFL/IELTS scores. For continuing students, progress in the academic program (grades, requirements satisfied, and research progress) is considered also.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
