Postgraduate Diploma in Quantitative Finance
About the course
The Postgraduate Diploma in Quantitative Finance is designed principally for postgraduates whose work in banks and other financial institutions requires knowledge of statistical (particularly econometric) and quantitative approaches to risk and derivatives. Graduates with strong previous quantitative training (such as engineers) and graduates with lower levels of previous training can both benefit from the programme by choosing appropriate courses. (The Programme Director will advise on your course choices).
The programme can also provide a suitable route towards entering the MSc Finance (major: Quantitative Finance).
