About Mathematical Trading and Finance at City, University of London

Who is it for?

To successfully complete this Mathematical Trading and Finance master’s course, you must have a good understanding of mathematics.

You may well have studied finance, economics, engineering or maths or physics as an undergraduate. Or you might have a bachelor’s degree in a science subject, in particular computer science.

You should have a general interest in mathematics and statistics.

You should have a general interest in learning the more technical and mathematical techniques used in financial markets, but you don’t need to have a background in finance.

Objectives

The difference between the MSc Mathematical Trading and Finance to the other two quants courses (MSc Financial Mathematics and MSc Quantitative Finance) are core modules which focus on quantitative trading and structuring.

You’ll study core modules which focus on the theory of finance and different financial assets. You will look at how these assets are priced and used for asset management or risk management purposes.

The second type of core modules cover the mathematical and statistical aspects needed in quantitative finance, including some stochastics. This also includes learning some programming languages, in particular Matlab, but also VBA.

Finally, Term three offers you flexibility within your masters; either by writing a dissertation or undertaking a project. You can complete your postgraduate degree entirely choosing electives.
