Financial Mathematics Program Description
The Master of Science in Financial Mathematics will prepare students to enter leadership positions in the financial industry and government where they will use their financial mathematics knowledge, skills, and creativity to provide innovate solutions and develop new or improved financial products and services.  The proposed program will build on the existing Master of Science in Engineering in Financial Mathematic; however this program will be delivered online and is intended for part-time students. This particular program aims to equip graduates with the engineering-driven approaches widely used to construct and deploy the financial transactions and processes that, in their context, function as the international financial system and capital markets.
