Introductory courses in finance, microeconomics and related subjects like optimization complete this phase of the program.
The second year starts with advanced courses in major fields of finance and economics common for all students, before addressing the individual topics of each specialization, Science Track and Industry Track.
The Science Track prepares students for an academic career, while the Industry track focuses on students seeking a career as quants in the finance industry and concentrates on combining financial models with computational skills.
