Program Description:

The MSc in Mathematical Trading & Finance prepares you for the sophisticated new investment opportunities, risks and instruments created by financial innovation and globalisation. It can be undertaken as a one-year full-time or two-year part-time programme. The programme combines mathematical theory with practical applications, teaching you how to control risks and understand the complex structure of derivative securities. Students should be at ease with sophisticated mathematical methods and statistical techniques. By the end of the course you will be ready to participate in derivatives markets, and many graduates have progressed directly to trading floor positions in leading banks. Cass's proximity to the City of London has done much to facilitate this progression, Cass's Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters trading rooms, which expertly simulate the trading environment, also do much to prepare you for the real world. The Masters in Mathematical Trading and Finance was launched with the generous support of the Corporation of London. Course Content We review all our courses regularly to keep them up-to-date on issues of both theory and practice. Consequently, there may be some change to the detailed content of the modules and occasionally to module titles. To satisfy the requirements of the degree programme students must complete: nine core courses and five electives or one elective and a Business Research Project
