Course Information

The MSc Financial Mathematics draws on tools from applied mathematics, computer science, statistics and economic theory to prepare you for roles in which you will combine in-depth knowledge of financial products and risk with sophisticated technical and programming skills.

You will acquire solid knowledge of probability theory and stochastic processes, numerical analysis and programming languages, asset pricing theory and risk analysis, with special emphasis on valuation and risk management.

Typical career paths of graduates from our MSc Financial Mathematics include research positions (in both financial and academic institutions), or roles involving the development, management and improvement of derivatives models using advanced programming languages, and model validation such as Equity/Equity Derivatives Quant, Quantitative Financial Engineer, or Quantitative Risk Analyst.

This programme is rigorous with respect to the mathematics but also places great emphasis on linking theory with real world developments. You will often be exposed to the teaching of real world practitioners from the City of London.

Cass's proximity to the City of London, and our close links to many of its institutions, will help you to access outstanding networking and career opportunities.
