Course Summary

The MSc in Quantitative Finance has been developed to address the demand for market-aware graduates who can demonstrate an understanding of mathematical models used in financial tools, products and software.

The course is an innovative cross-faculty alliance between Strathclyde Business School and the Faculty of Science. It's been designed for those with a strong aptitude for mathematics, statistics and computing who haven't studied these topics in detail in their undergraduate degree. The course allows students with different degree backgrounds to learn the necessary skills to move into the financial industry.

The programme will prepare you for a career in financial engineering and risk management leading to roles as hedge fund manager or financial analyst.

Modules

The educational intention of this class is to bring all of the students up to the same level of mathematical and statistical training so that they can then undertake the financial theory classes in semester 2.
