Financial engineering provides innovative solutions of pricing, hedging, trading, and portfolio management problems by employing advanced mathematical methods and computer technology.
Graduates of the Financial Engineering (FE) master program are capable of taking over executive functions in financial management. They are qualified to consider challenges in the finance sector from an engineer’s point of view and to develop and optimize innovative solutions on the basis of fundamental economic laws. Their profound understanding of complex financial products enables them to deal with the challenges of an increasingly globally acting finance sector.
Participants apply and optimize acknowledged financing theories, engineering methods, and management tools as well as mathematical and computer-aided techniques. Simultaneously, they identify the limits of economic and financial-mathematical models. Consequently, they are prepared well for careers at e.g. credit institutes, investment companies, insurance companies, consulting firms, and finance departments of big national and international industrial companies.
Focus of the Program
This Master of Science program prepares executives for leading positions in the engineering sector.
