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).
