A minor in Finance is available to students in the university's Applied and Industrial Mathematics, and Physics programs. Mathematics is a key component of problem solving, from the modelling of atmospheric physics to the complexities of managing risk in financial markets. For instance computational finance focused on the measurement, management and analysis of financial risk, and detailed insight into numerical and computational techniques in the pricing, hedging and risk management of financial instruments. Furthermore, it is well understood and noticed that modern finance is becoming increasingly technical, requiring the use of sophisticated mathematical tools in both research and practice.
Students wishing to take this minor should consult with their academic advisor for suggested program maps.
