Master's degree programme in Quantitative Finance

Theoretical and applied questions in financial economics are not only important key competences for jobs bearing responsibility in finance and insurance companies and financial supervisory authorities, but also in research and teaching. Theories of business management and economics, statistics and econometrics, as well as theories specific to capital markets all form the basis of teaching, which, in addition to strongly focusing on research, also frequently refer to practice in the financial market. Alongside an understanding of complex model mechanisms and diverse economic modelling approaches, empirical methods allowing for testing with regard to fiscal conditions are also imparted to the students.
