Second Major in Financial Mathematics

Students with strong quantitative background and keen interest in applications of mathematics in banking and finance are encouraged to take up a Second Major in Financial Mathematics. This programme extends the Minor in Financial Mathematics by offering a broader set of modules in quantitative methods required for a more in-depth understanding of key financial applications.   There are nine core modules for building the key mathematical and quantitative foundation, and for imparting the mathematical theory behind various financial models and applications. The three elective modules in the requirements allow flexibility to suit the student’s interests.
