OUR PROGRAM

From its home in New York City, the epicenter of the financial world, the Master of Science in Mathematics in Finance program at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences is grounded in pragmatic development of the next generation of quants and financial data scientists. 

Our courses are developed, designed, and innovated to give you the foundational knowledge and practical skills needed to succeed in the highly competitive, highly dynamic financial industry. 

A cornerstone of the training you’ll receive is the real-time, real-world experience and insight that only the best financial professionals can provide. That’s why the vast majority of our instructors are also working industry professionals, many of whom hold VP, executive, or managerial positions at some of the world’s leading financial institutions.

MS in Mathematics in Finance students graduate with the background, capabilities, and connections to stand apart in the job market. Having built upon already-solid foundations in applied mathematics, they hold the technical acumen, quantitative expertise, and creative flexibility to quickly become the most capable quants in any room.

A FINANCIAL INDUSTRY MAINSTAY

Year after year, graduates from the MS in Mathematics in Finance program land coveted positions in a wide range of areas at some of the world’s most renowned financial organizations. From research, trading, and asset management to algorithmic trading, regulation, and risk management, our graduates are making an impact at Alliance Bernstein, Bank of America, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Google, Facebook, JP Morgan Chase, PIMCO, Point 72, Two Sigma, and more. 

LEADING-EDGE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING

Our curriculum and courses are always evolving. Leveraging the insight and experience of our instructors, advisory board members, and industry colleagues, we know what’s happening in the financial industry right now—and we pass that cutting-edge information on to students like you. Whether it’s discoveries in applied mathematics, advances in machine learning, or innovations in financial data science, we teach what today’s quants need to know in order to succeed tomorrow. We modify existing courses constantly and develop new courses regularly. We do everything we can to make sure you’re ready to take the lead in an industry in which rapid change is the norm.
