MSc Financial Engineering

Programme Director: Brad Baxter

This programme offers advanced training in quantitative skills used in modern financial institutions. These include most notably valuation of securities, and measurement and management of portfolio risks. Training is provided in programming, numerical methods and statistics and you will be grounded in date pricing and risk management techniques.

A notable feature of the programme is the emphasis on computational methods and implementation of the pricing and risk management techniques learnt. You will complete modules in programming, numerical methods and financial statistics and all the modules of the programme are illustrated by computer examples.

Students graduating from the programme should be equipped to work as specialist quantitative analysts in financial institutions or to complete doctoral study in financial engineering.

Students who obtain pass marks or better on at least two of the four taught-course modules on the MSc Financial Engineering but do not satisfy the requirement to obtain the MSc may obtain a Postgraduate Certificate in Financial Engineering.
