Financial Math Program Overview


The Financial Mathematics Program provides technically trained professionals with an understanding of how to value financial derivatives and complex investments, and assess the associated risks. Graduates must have a rigorous training in mathematics, especially in the area of stochastic processes and probability, in statistics, and  in computation, together with a foundation in the institutional operation of financial markets. The Program also provides a focal point for Financial Mathematics activities such as research seminars and workshops.

The core courses have been chosen to provide students with a strong mathematical background, statistical and computational tools, and a comprehensive description of financial markets.The departments offering courses in  the core; Agricultural and Resource Economics, Economics, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mathematics, and Statistics. Elective courses are offered by these departments and others, including Business Management and Computer Science.

There is also a one-semester (summer) internship or project.

Students get to work one-on-one with the Director of External Relations to enhance their professional and career development skills, while defining their career goals and gaining valuable resources. The Director of External Relations (DER) role was added to the program in August 2013, and since then students who work closely with the DER have been placed successfully in full-time jobs and internships; we have 100% placement rate.
