MSc Financial Engineering


Ruben Garcia Moral

"Having previously worked in the provision of assurance and advisory services to the finance industry, the MSc in Financial Engineering at Birkbeck has allowed me to get a much clearer understanding of the interaction and integration between finance, mathematics, econometrics and computing science in today’s dynamic financial markets and their application in solving real-life financial and risk related problems. The course’s multi-disciplinary approach provides a firm grounding and well-balanced foundation for those interested in pursuing a career in quantitative finance, risk management or furthering their interest in research work.

The calibre of the teaching staff is very high and they are always willing to work with students even outside normal hours. The modules are scheduled and designed to cater for the needs of working professionals. Additional revision classes are often offered, where answers to questions and further direction on taught materials, project work and research interests are provided.

The course content is substantially enhanced and complemented by project work assignments mostly designed to equip students with a critical understanding of current scientific research and recent developments.  This, combined with the diverse background of the students, allows for a multitude of mutual synergies to develop.

I would strongly recommend this programme to people who aspire to pursue a challenging future in quantitative finance or risk management. I am confident that the knowledge and the network that I have acquired during the course stand me in good stead for my career in finance"
