Business Analytics: Financial Risk Management

How should share options be priced? Which home owners are most likely to default on their mortgage payments? If any sector uses numbers, it’s finance. The availability of large amounts of data opens up numerous possibilities to apply quantitative techniques. And this track will give you the tools to crunch the numbers.

 

You’ll learn to price derivatives, such as share options, and strategies for risk management. And you’ll learn how to determine which customers are most at risk of defaulting on their monthly payments. You’ll gain both practical skills and theoretical knowledge, making you a valuable asset for any financial institution or fintech.

 

If you choose this track, you’ll take compulsory courses that combine mathematics with financial applications, including stochastic processes for finance, applied analysis using financial mathematics, and investments.

Business Analytics: Financial Risk Management

As a graduate from the Business Analytics Master’s programme, you’ll be familiar with all the steps from data to solution, including the skills required to communicate to stakeholders and convince them of your advice.

 

You’ll be well-prepared either to focus on a single step in the process – becoming a specialist – or to take a broad view, sitting at the centre of the web in data science projects. In both cases, Business Analytics alumni are extremely valuable to all sorts of organisations.

 

Both the private and public sectors are constantly looking for ways to increase efficiency and effectiveness. Your skills as a business analyst are in such high demand that you may receive job offers before you graduate or at the company where you completed your internship.

 

And there’s more: even during your studies you could easily find yourself taking on a part-time job as a junior data analyst or programmer. While your fellow students are waiting tables or stocking shelves, you could well be generating extra income while picking up highly relevant work experience.
