Master of Science in Mathematical Finance
The objective of this Master of Science program is to produce graduates with a rigorous foundation in the economic theory and mathematical modeling of financial markets. The program creates an integrated curriculum spanning four disciplines: economics, mathematics, econometrics/statistics and computational/numerical analysis. The program is designed for recent graduates in the fields of applied mathematics, physics and engineering - or for graduates in economics, business and finance with strong mathematical backgrounds - who wish to pursue high-tech finance careers in financial institutions, industry or government.

A program that can meet the needs of the new environment is indeed demanding: students must acquire a good mathematical knowledge of stochastic processes, a good knowledge of numerical analysis and computation, plus a good understanding of the structure, functioning and modeling of financial markets. It is with this in mind that the MS degree in Mathematical Finance was created as a joint Program between the Economics and Mathematics Departments at USC. The objective of the Program is to produce graduates with a rigorous foundation in the economic theory and mathematical modeling of financial markets.
