Financial innovation and globalisation have created new investment opportunities and risks. In order to exploit these opportunities and control these risks, participants should be at ease with sophisticated mathematical methods and statistical techniques.
This MSc in Mathematical Trading and Finance, sponsored by the Corporation of London, provides students who have excellent mathematical skills with a rigorous foundation in financial theory and practice to enable them to participate fully in this demanding market. Dow Jones Telerate sponsorship means students can gain valuable experience of working in a dealing room and trading using real time data.
Graduates work as financial engineers, traders, quantitative asset managers and risk managers in leading institutions such as Salomon Smith Barney, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Nomura.
