Our applicants come from diversified backgrounds and nationalities; however, students will need to have successfully completed prerequisite courses before enrolling. Prerequisites do not have to be completed before applying for admission, but they have to happen before starting the program.
You should have a background on the following topics:
- Applied Statistics
- Computer Programming
- Linear Algebra
- Partial Differential Equations
- Probability Theory
If you think you do not have the required background, you are strongly recommended to attend our summer preparation program–FM Summer Workshop. The workshop may also cover some basics on accounting, business communication and corporate finance.
The workshop will last 2-3 weeks and start in late July or early August. The workshop includes training on the above topics coupled with a comprehensive orientation on Financial Mathematics.
2018 FM Summer Workshop was held from August 6 – August 14, 2018.
Tentative dates for 2019 FM Summer Workshop are July 29 – August 15, 2019.
