Course Description

Oxford University offers a world-class programme focusing on advanced numerical and modelling techniques and applications of mathematics in finance. ? Run by the Mathematical & Computational Finance Group (MCFG) and the Continuing Professional Development Centre (CPD). ? Taught by leading Oxford University academics and practitioners from the Financial Markets. ? Modular structure providing a convenient way to attain further qualifications whilst in full-time employment. ? Enabling experienced professionals to review concepts ranging from the fundamentals through to the latest advances in research and development. ? Placing students in a strong position to develop careers in quantitative finance. ? Providing the opportunity for students to network. The Diploma has been offered since January 1999 and was extended to the full MSc in January 2002, with the aim of offering instruction in advanced mathematical and quantitative methods applied to investment banking and finance. ? MCFG is part of the University's Mathematical Institute, and is one of the largest financial mathematics research and teaching groups in the UK. ? The CPD Centre is an innovative and progressive unit, forming part of the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. It provides high quality, flexible, part-time postgraduate education and professional development, typically in partnership with specialist departments within the University. The entire Postgraduate Programme is normally completed part-time over two years, with the taught component delivered via a series of residential modules in Oxford (about 40 days? teaching in all). The two-tier modular Programme (progressing from the Diploma to the MSc) provides students with a thorough grounding in Mathematical Finance through: ? focusing on mathematical modelling and computational techniques in finance, ranging from fundamental concepts to recent advances ? covering the most important technical and quantitative aspects of finance in regular use in financial institutions ? Core Modules providing the theoretical underpinning and demonstrating techniques applicable to a broad class of markets and products ? Advanced Modules often focusing on more specific aspects arising in pricing and hedging in various markets ? formal lectures, informal discussions and hands-on workshops. The Programme is taught by eminent academics from the Mathematical & Computational Finance Group (part of the University?s Mathematical Institute) and by experienced practitioners from investment banking and the finance industry. This combination contributes immensely to the strength of the Programme, providing students with access to the latest thinking and modelling techniques. ? The Programme is delivered by leading authorities in advanced mathematical and quantitative methods. ? Students are encouraged to explore underlying principles and their real-life application. ? Theory is illustrated through practical examples of how current technology is used in financial institutions. ? Programme content is constantly updated to keep apace with developments within the finance sector.
