### Specialization requirements

In addition to the general requirements, you need the compulsory courses

at least three of the courses

- MMA110 Integration Theory
- MMA711 Financial Derivatives and Partial Differential Equations
- MMA630 Computational methods for stochastic differential equations
- MSA101 Computational Methods for Bayesian Statistics
- MSA220 Statistical Learning for Big Data
- MSA350 Stochastic calculus
- MSA400 Financial risk
- MSA410 Financial time series

and at least two of these courses given at the School of Business, Economics and Law:

- GM1002 Financial Institutions and Markets
- GM1015 Advanced Corporate Finance
- GM1014 Applied Portfolio Management (NOTE: This course may be difficult to follow for students without additional background in economics)

Courses with codes GMxxxx or HNFxxx are given at Handelshögskolan. Other courses, (MMA/MSA) are given at the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

### Courses in business and economics

Courses with course codes GMxxxx are given at Handelshögskolans Graduate School. To sign up for these courses contact programme coordinator Hjalmar Rosengren.

Courses with course codes HNFxxx are given as part of Handelshögskolans Bachelor degree in Economics. For more information about these courses, and to sign up, contact Katarina Renström.

As a master student in mathematical sciences, you may also attend other courses in the Master of Science in Finance at Handelshögskolan. See their web pages for information about such courses.

### Your study plan

Before you start the studies you should contact the program coordinator Hjalmar Rosengren to set up an individual study plan.

The three compulsory courses and one of the specialization courses listed above and given at the Department of Mathematical Sciences are required before the student can be registered for either MMA930 Thesis in Mathematics for the two-year Master Program in Mathematical Sciences, specialisation Finance Mathematics, or MSA930 Thesis in Mathematical Statistics for the two-year Master Program in Mathematical Sciences, specialisation Finance Mathematics
