Bachelor of Science (Honours) Financial Mathematics

This programme stresses producing graduates with advanced training in quantitative finance. Nowadays, as the financial environment becomes more and more sophisticated, we need financial professionals who are capable to analyse, evaluate financial instruments and manage risks of investment quantitatively. 

UTAR’s Financial Mathematics programme provides the best training for this purpose. Mathematical finance draws from the disciplines of probability theory, scientific computing, and computational finance to provide models and derive relationships between fundamental variables such as asset prices, market movements and interest rates. 

These disciplines allow us to design financial products based on the theory of option pricing due to Black, Scholes, and Merton (Nobel Prize Winners in 1997). Undergraduates trained in these disciplines would able to strengthen financial risk management and raw materials hedging in large multi-national corporations. They could also be future participants or regulator of the derivatives and commodity markets. 

 In UTAR's Financial Mathematics programme, students will have the opportunities to try their programming skills in electronically automated trading system.
