Aims of the Program

The Master in Finance program provides a unique interdisciplinary education in mathematical finance to students from around the world. The program, which is taught in English, includes courses from mathematics, applied mathematics, finance and insurance.

Special attention will be given to foundations from various branches of applied mathematics (stochastics, statistics, applied and numerical analysis), which are necessary for modeling complex financial processes and products. With the help of such knowledge, students will be able to use advanced mathematical methods in order to solve practical problems. Example applications are portfolio optimization, the pricing and risk analysis of credit derivatives, asset-backed securities and insurance products, or bankruptcy prediction. Many of the offered courses focus on such applications. Students will also gain familiarity with the information system Bloomberg, which is available in the faculty’s trading room.
