Financial Mathematics

This programme prepares mathematicians for careers in the financial sector. The analysis of modern financial market data relies heavily on mathematical and statistical techniques. Mathematical techniques and tools devised using financial mathematics have contributed greatly to the development of the financial services industry and continue to play a key role in this sector. This programme starts with a firm foundation to the mathematics and statistics that is in daily use in the financial industry. It then leads to advanced studies in financial mathematics, including asset price modelling, the risk-neutral pricing of financial derivatives, time series analysis, actuarial mathematics, and financial time series. This provides graduates with the relevant mathematical and statistical backgrounds to enter careers in the financial services industry, actuarial and insurance sectors or further study in financial mathematics. There is a strong focus on the skills required by employers of graduate mathematicians. The BSc Hons Financial Mathematics has been accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation when followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency for taught master’s degrees. There are work placement opportunities for students on this programme, and we recently introduced a final year course on Data Analytics with input from several employers to ensure that students are well placed to take up careers in this fast-growing field of mathematics. Since many of our students are interested in pursuing a career in teaching, we offer teaching experience through the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme. This encourages and nurtures a new generation of mathematicians and provides the opportunity to gain classroom experience through a final-year option. **RANKING** Greenwich mathematics degrees are ranked: * First in London for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017 * Within UK's top 5 for student satisfaction by the Complete University Guide 2017 **OUTCOMES** The aims of the programme are: * To provide students with a good understanding of financial mathematics and the methods and techniques used in the area * To provide experience of mathematical modelling in various contexts, focusing on financial modelling and actuarial analysis • To enable students to develop an understanding of modern financial modelling and examines the basic techniques used in the analysis of financial data.
