Regular MA program This program is suitable for those students who want to undertake graduate study in mathematics or statistics. To be admitted, students normally must hold an honours degree in mathematics or statistics. Students with an honours degree in other mathematics-intensive disciplines (e.g. Computer Science, Science, Economics) and who have a broad knowledge of mathematics or statistics are also considered. Graduate Diploma in Finanical Engineering The Financial Engineering program at York is designed to provide the relevant training in finance, mathematics, and computer science which is necessary to understand, design and value new financial instruments: for example, the various types of derivative securities which are prevalent in modern financial markets.
