The study, for the 2020-2021 academic year, given the extraordinary circumstances in which we find ourselves, could carry out part of its teaching in a non-contact way depending on the health situation.

The development of new financial options assessment, hedging, and more generally, risk transfer technology since the 70's fostered the creation of the derivatives market and revolutionized the financial world. Since the 90's, financial entities increasingly require quantitative analysts, mathematicians in particular.

The Master in Mathematics for Financial Instruments was born from such demand, and it aims to help young math graduates, or other graduates with mathematical talent, to develop the language and tools to be able to enter the country's large financial institutions as quantitative analysts.

In the 10 years this Master has been offered, these goals have been successfully achieved, and we are currently highly regarded by financial institutions in Catalonia.

Professional placement for graduates is currently excellent, and there are excellent possibilities for high level professional careers in the financial world for our graduates. In fact, more than a hundred are currently working in the Catalan financial system in entities such as: CaixaBanc, Banc Sabadell, Crèdit Andorrà, Catalana Occident i VidaCaixa.
