In addition to the general requirements, you need the compulsory courses
at least three of the courses
and at least two of these courses given at the School of Business, Economics and Law:
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 program 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 Stefan Lemurell 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
Schedule for some relevant courses
(1) The course is given in academic years starting with ayear with an odd number, e.g., 17-18.
(2) The course is given in academic years starting with a year with an even number, e.g., 18-19.
Most of the courses at Handelshögskolan goes at full speed and (*) means that they run in the first half of the study period and (**) that they run in the second half.
