You will carry out relevant mathematical and financial analysis, develop and implement appropriate tools to present and interpret model results.
The Mathematical and Computational Finance course at the University of Oxford lays the foundation for further research in academia or for a career as a quantitative analyst in a financial or other institution.
You will take four introductory courses in the first week. The introductory courses cover partial differential equations, probability and statistics, financial markets and Python.
The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Mathematical Institute and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Mathematical Institute.
You will be assigned an initial supervisor on arrival in Oxford whose role is to act as an academic advisor during the first two terms of the course. In the third term, your supervisor will usually change when you start work on your dissertation.
MSc graduates have been recruited by prominent investment banks and hedge funds. Many past students have also progressed to PhD-level studies at leading universities in Europe and elsewhere.
