You will be in high demand for jobs, since you have a better understanding of how all the pieces fit together.

 

Beyond theory alone, you will develop your quantitative skills by solving practical exercises and analysing real-life cases.  The experienced faculty will supplement their teaching with frequent guest lecturers from major international companies, who will share current challenges and opportunities. Part of your coursework will be to explore these challenges and develop solutions for them.  Your Master’s thesis will explore a contemporary topic defined in collaboration with industry or government.
