What will I learn?

The Graduate Certificate in Financial Mathematics, offered through the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences Department of Mathematics, trains students in sophisticated mathematical techniques so they may analyze problems arising from financial economics. Examples include the use of stochastic processes and partial differential equations to study stock markets and to price financial derivatives.

Graduates will be well-positioned to advance careers in public, private, and governmental financial institutions with a heavy emphasis on analytic methods and quantitative skills. This two-year, 12-credit certificate is also ideal for those planning to pursue graduate programs in economics or finance and who wish to supplement their mathematical training.
