The Master of Science in Financial Engineering at National University of Singapore is a multi-disciplinary program that combines finance, mathematics, and computing with a practical orientation to solve problems in finance.


The Financial Engineering at National University of Singapore aims to equip finance and banking industry professionals and fresh graduates with current knowledge and skills in financial innovations and technology. The domain knowledge includes financial product development, modelling of prices, hedging, investment technology, risk analyses and computational methods.


Career opportunities for financial engineers are available worldwide in commercial and investment banks, brokerage and securities firms, treasury and financial planning departments of non-financial corporations, insurance companies, consulting, investment advisories, accounting firms, government financial agencies, hedge funds, pension funds, and financial software and technology businesses. 

The combination of skills - understanding of complex financial strategies, financial modelling ability, and computational proficiency - is in high demand, and is difficult for employers to find in graduates of traditional MBA or quantitative degrees such as engineering, physics or mathematics.
