Professional development > Mathematical finance
The variety of experience that the tutors contribute provides students with valuable insight into both financial theory and its practical application within the workplace.
For those who are already in full-time employment in a financial institution, and seeking to move into a more quantitative role during or on completion of the Programme.
This flexible, part-time Programme is designed to allow those working full-time to develop expertise in mathematical finance without compromising their professional work. Structured around a series of intensive, week-long modules spread over two years, it is particularly suitable for students with competing time commitments or who are based outside the UK.
Teaching is drawn from Oxford’s academic staff and leading figures in the financial industry. The syllabus covers the essentials of advanced numerical and modelling techniques and the practical applications of mathematics in finance. In their second-year of the MSc, students can orient their studies according to what is directly relevant to their work by choosing from elective modules and by writing a dissertation that is also a mathematically challenging work project.
