MS in Financial Mathematics
Monmouth University’s Master of Science in Financial Mathematics combines traditional business school learning with advanced mathematics studies. As a result, students earn a degree that makes them marketable to employers in securities and investments firms, the banking industry, at consulting firms, at insurance firms, with hedge fund groups, and more.
Earn skills that would enable you to:
manage financial portfolios and minimize investment risk
support investment decisions
develop financial products and pricing
Monmouth’s proximity to a large business-industrial sector makes our faculty well aware of emerging needs in the banking and financial worlds. Many of these firms seek graduates with advanced knowledge in the areas of:
computational modeling or simulation
At Monmouth, you can now learn these skills—from both mathematics and business professors who are experienced professionals in relevant fields.
The MSFM curriculum consists of 36 credits. Students with sufficient background and training may have two foundation courses waived, which means they would only need 30 credits to complete the program. Students may attend either full- or part-time, allowing them to earn their degree in as little as one or two years. See the curriculum sequence for additional details.
