The Mas­ter Quant­it­at­ive Fin­ance will provide you with an ex­cel­lent aca­demic and prac­tical edu­ca­tion to be­come an ex­pert in fin­an­cial meth­od­o­logy. It is your ideal start­ing point for a fu­ture ca­reer in today’s chal­len­ging and dy­namic fin­an­cial mar­kets.

The well-bal­anced cur­riculum builds strong quant­it­at­ive skills com­bined with a solid know­ledge base of the un­derly­ing the­ory of fin­ance. Stu­dents ac­quire the ne­ces­sary know­ledge and skills to use mathem­at­ical mod­els to un­der­stand com­plex fin­an­cial prob­lems.

A spe­cial fo­cus lies on us­ing the soft­ware 'R', an open source im­ple­ment­a­tion of the lan­guage S for data ana­lysis and visu­al­isa­tion. Stu­dents be­ne­fit from the ex­pert­ise of the pro­grams' fac­ulty, which is strongly in­volved in the in­ter­na­tional devel­op­ment com­munity of R.



Spe­cial­ize in Science or In­dustry

The Science Track pre­pares stu­dents for an aca­demic ca­reer in the field of fin­ance, while the In­dustry Track fo­cuses on a ca­reer as quants (ana­lysts) in the fin­ance in­dustry, com­bin­ing fin­an­cial mod­els with com­pu­ta­tional skills. You can spe­cial­ize in the second year of your stud­ies and build up a strong aca­demic net­works and links to the fin­ance in­dustry.
