About the Financial Mathematics Programs

Sophisticated financial tools are now routinely employed in many areas of the corporate world.  The curriculum of the financial mathematics program focuses on the development, application, and improvement of computational and statistical financial tools. 

Master of Financial Mathematics

The Master of Financial Mathematics is a collaboration of the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Economics and Finance, and integrates the study of statistics, computation and modeling with training in the professional domain.

The capstone element of the program is a Mathematics Clinic, a research project in which the student applies mathematical, numerical, or statistical modeling methods to a problem related to the financial industry.  The Mathematics Clinic can be a team project and can involve faculty members from both departments.

Certificate Programs in Financial Mathematics

Designed for individuals that don't require a full Master's degree, but wish to learn how to apply advanced mathematics to the finance industry, the Department of Mathematics offers certificates in Computational Finance, Statistical Finance and Financial Risk Management.   Courses taken as part of a Master's degree program (either in Financial or Applied Mathematics) may not be used for the certificate programs.
