This program helps students understand the underlying mathematics of quantitative finance. The program offers a range of courses, from theoretical to practical, including a mathematical course on stochastic processes and a practitioner's course offering hands-on practice to learn financial software tools. There is also a programming course with a focus on learning to use software to present technical material to a not necessarily technical audience. Courses are offered in the evenings to accommodate working professionals. The program is designed with a possibility for full-time students to complete all requirements in one year.
