Academic Tracks

apply-now

All students completing a Masters of Financial Mathematics must take at least three electives. Choices for electives are quite extensive, so we developed Tracks that can guide your selections.

Tracks are tied to career paths and designed to prepare you for the right job after graduation.

Availability of courses- Seeing a course listed as an elective is not a promise to offer the class. Similarly, courses in these Tracks are necessarily offered on a regular basis. When courses are offered, they are not necessarily available to MFM students.

Requirements- To complete a Track, complete 3 or more electives in a particular list. Participating in a Track will have no impact on your official transcript and is not a requirement of the program, BUT adding a Track to your resume can help with your career search.
