About

The Quantitative Finance program of the Zagreb School of Economics and Management  includes courses that are also taught at the majority of the graduate programs in Europe and the United States related to the field of Statistics and Finance.

Overview

Program Features

The Quantitative Finance program of the Zagreb School of Economics and Management has recently been included in Eduniversal’s list of the top 100 programs in the world in the area of Financial Markets. This is the second consecutive year in which our MBA in Quantitative Finance has been included in this list, and is placed ahead of similar programs in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, and France.

This two-semester program begins with courses in Financial Management and Financial Statement Analysis, along with Selected Chapters of Financial Mathematics that covers zero-coupon bonds, yield curves and hedging, yield measurement and other topics. The second semester includes courses such as Financial Derivatives, in which students will analyze forwards, futures, and swaps; Quantitative Methods for Managers; and Applied Econometrics, through which students will receive an overview of important statistical tests. However, these are just some of the courses offered in this very advanced program.

Every lecture covers a specific practical problem from the world of finance, which can be solved using one of the following programs: Eviews, gretl, and STRATA. Students will also receive detailed instructions on how to use these useful software packages, and will use real economic and financial data in their analysis.   Besides analyzing empirical data, the student will use numerical simulations to generate data with properties that can be found in empirical data.

Lecturers are both from Croatia and abroad, academic environment and business practice, including top experts from renowned financial institutions such as the Croatian National Bank and from some of Croatia’s largest commercial banks.
