Our Computational Finance MSc will introduce you to the computational methods that are widely used by practitioners and financial institutions in today’s markets. You will get a solid foundation not only in traditional quantitative methods and financial instruments, but also scientific computing, numerical methods, high-performance computing, distributed ledgers, big-data analytics and agent-based modelling. These techniques will be used to understand financial markets from a post-crisis perspective which incorporates findings from the study of financial markets at high-frequency time scales, modern approaches to understanding systematic risk and financial contagion, and disruptive technologies such as distributed-ledgers and crypto-currencies. The course is highly practical, and you’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning to real-world data and case studies in hands-on laboratory sessions.
