Finance is an important area in the application of mathematics. Banks, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds and multinational companies are just some of the organisations that need highly skilled mathematics graduates who understand how financial markets operate.
This course provides you with an understanding of the mathematics and the business acumen required in the world of finance. By graduation, you’ll be able to develop pricing models of financial derivatives and related financial products, and have the skills to apply and interpret them. There is high demand for professionals who can model and control uncertainty in financial markets.
This course is an enhanced undergraduate degree lasting four years (or five with an optional year in industry) that combines modules from the BSc (Hons) Financial Mathematics degree with Masters level material and exposes you to a greater volume of mathematics and at a greater depth compared to the three year BSc (Hons) Financial Mathematics degree.
