The master's degree in Mathematics for Financial Instruments arose in response to the growing demand from the financial sector for persons with a solid grounding in mathematics.
This programme is open to graduates in Mathematics, Physics, Business Studies, Economics, Statistics, or related subject areas, and its objective is to train up quantitative analysts in the field of finance, with a deep, critical understanding of the models and methods used in the sector.
Classes are taught by instructors from the academic world (UAB, UB, UPC, CRM) and the world of professional practice (CaixaBank, Banc de Sabadell, Catalana Occidente, Barcelona Stock Exchange), which creates important contact opportunities for future interactions.
Our collaborating organisations provide us with the necessary on-the-job learning component by offering grants for placements. This establishes a direct line of collaboration between the academic and professional worlds, enabling us, on the one hand, to develop and teach ground-breaking techniques for the valuation of derivative financial products, for calculating their coverage strategies, and for assessing and controlling risks and, on the other hand, to introduce our students to this employment market, thus enriching their professional experience.
This master's degree offers excellent career prospects for our graduates in all areas where a combination of mathematical skills and financial knowledge is required.
Career opportunitiesFinancial institutions, company consulting, insurance companies, etc.
In-company work placement for 20 credits, having passed all subjects in the academic year and having successfully completed the graduate diploma. In addition, students write a report on the placement which counts as their master's degree final project.
