  • Objectives
    Quantitative finance is a lucrative and growing area. This degree combines a broad study of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Probability and Statistics with modules in Enterprise, Business and Economics. The second and third years specialise in those areas of mathematics most relevant to financial applications, such as models of fluctuations of share prices on the stock exchange, as well as areas of finance such as financial derivatives or corporate finance. Some modules are taught by the Departments of Management and Economics.
