The concentration in Mathematical Finance seeks to broaden and deepen the educational experience of students by offering them the opportunity to be active participants - effective problem solvers - in what is becoming a structural shift in thinking since the global financial crisis of 2007-2009. This shift is occurring in both the academic and corporate communities. The demand is not only for new thinking but new talent in both communities. As a response, the concentration in mathematical finance seeks not only to prepare students for careers in the corporate sector but also to groom them for graduate degrees.
BY THE NUMBERS
At the Epicenter of Finance
Connor Reynolds sharpened his finance skills at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The concentration draws on tools from applied mathematics, including calculus, linear algebra, and statistics, to prepare students for careers in corporate treasury, investment banking, commercial banking, hedge funds, insurance, and risk management. As the pace of financial innovation quickens, the need for highly qualified individuals with specific training in financial mathematics will only intensify. The concentration not only meets the increasing market demands but also prepares scholarly students for advanced study in finance at the graduate level.
