The Departments of Mathematics and Statistics, in close cooperation with the Departments of Economics and Management, Science & Engineering and the Graduate School of Business, offer an Interdisciplinary Master of Science Degree in Financial Mathematics.
The Financial Math Program provides a masters-level education in applied and computational mathematics, statistics and financial applications to individuals with strong mathematical skills.
Of the program graduates, 15-20% continue on to higher education (PhD or faculty positions) and 80-85% assume positions in the financial industry, typically as quantitative modelers, or traders. These alumni are employees of companies such as Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse,
Barclays, JP Morgan, Citi, and UBS, as well as hedge funds, banks and other firms. Many of our alumni are based in New York, but some are based in London, some in Asia and some in the San Francisco Bay Area.
