Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF)
The 17-month Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF) program focuses on the crux of mathematical concepts that led to the development of the Black-Scholes option pricing method and have grown recently into a universal tool for creating effective investment strategies and risk-analysis.
A distinguishing characteristic of the MSMF is the careful integration of certain practical domains of mathematics with an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern finance. Our view of the field of mathematical finance (MF) has always been that “mathematical” modifies “finance” and that understanding the nature of the Brownian motion, however instrumental, does not amount to an understanding of finance. Therefore, this program focuses on the unique field of mathematical finance rather than treating mathematics and finance as separate entities.
