Master of Mathematical Finance

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This 12-month program in the mathematics of finance and financial risk management is directed at recent graduates of mathematics, physical science and engineering programs. The program is in its 9th year of operation and has produced nearly 200 graduates who have found employment domestically and internationally in financial institutions. The Program involves a first semester of coursework with a balance of finance and mathematics courses that build on the strong mathematical foundation of the students. This is followed by a four-month industrial internship and a final semester of course and group project work. During the program, students not only develop the technical skills required to function as a professional in the financial risk management profession, but also develop the communication skills they need to present ideas effectively to non-mathematicians in corporate finance roles.
