After your degree
If you’re a problem solver, have great math skills and a keen interest in financial markets, you’ll thrive in Mathematical and Computational Finance, a field where these skills and interests intersect. Mathematical finance analysts apply their knowledge of mathematics, statistics, probability and financial theory to assess market forces and minimize risk and maximize profitability.
As a student, you’ll study mathematics, statistics, probability, economics and computer science along with finance and management at the John Molson School of Business. Specialized courses in Mathematical and Computational Finance will give you many opportunities to practise applying mathematics to finance.
You will also:
This program is designed for students who wish to begin a career in quantitative finance after graduation, or those who plan to pursue graduate studies in financial engineering or mathematical finance.
A Bachelor of Arts or Science degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
The Co-op program gives you the chance to do paid work terms with financial institutions and other firms. As a Co-op student, you may work on:
Please note that you may apply for the Co-op option after completing your first academic term.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
Mathematical and Computational Finance alumni may find employment in banks, investment firms, hedge funds, energy companies, government and other businesses. Graduates pursue careers in fields such as:
Specialization in Mathematical and Computational Finance
From statistics to coding, Christina Aladasstina found the skills she learned complemented each other perfectly as she progressed in her program.
If you want to learn how to predict the future, consider actuarial mathematics. Actuaries use their mathematical and statistical wizardry to solve problems involving risk and uncertainty.
Department of Mathematics & Statistics
Faculty of Arts & Science
Model the future, solve problems involving risk, and make financial decisions that will affect the futures of corporations, communities and investors. This combined program offers you a direct path to an actuarial career with a financial sector specialization.
If you’re a problem solver, have great math skills and a keen interest in financial markets, Mathematical and Computational Finance is the field where these skills and interests intersect.
