University of York
Candidates are expected to have a Class 2.1 (or equivalent) or higher undergraduate degree in finance or economics with sufficient background in mathematical sciences, or in a mathematics-based field with sufficient background in finance and economics. We are looking for a minimum of 2 years (4 semesters or 6 trimesters) of university level courses in mathematics, and a similar amount and level of courses in economics and finance, with good marks. Competence in computing is desirable. Professional experience in quantitative finance will be an advantage, but not a prerequisite, which can compensate to some extent for limited formal training. International students will also need to demonstrate a good command of English by meeting the criteria under language requirements.
Compulsory core modules: Either econometric methods for research or econometrics 1 and 2; continuous time finance; financial engineering; mathematical methods of finance; stochastic calculus and Black-Scholes theory; time series; topics in financial econometrics; dissertation. Students also choose 1 further module from a wide range of options.
