Focus, educational goals

This Master's Programme in Mathematical Modelling in Economics envisages the acquisition of a variety of mathematical and computer resources, providing theoretical and practical knowledge applicable to economics or directly to practical work (finance, insurance, company management, etc.).

Training (knowledge and skills)

This programme includes courses in the main areas of Mathematics (optimization tasks, probability and statistical methods, numerical methods, dynamic tasks), allowing to model, explore and optimize specific phenomena and processes in the economy. Their practical applicability is based on in-depth knowledge of micro- and macroeconomics, financial instruments and markets, insurance, statistical data processing, etc., combined with skills to apply modern information technologies.

Professional competence

The training in this programme, even in traditional economic disciplines, is characterized by a high degree of use of mathematical resources at a level comparable to that of the usual university programmes in Economics designed to obtain a PhD degree.

Professional realization

Graduates of the programme can work as quantity analysis specialists in the financial industry, risk analysts in banks and actuaries. The scientific training allows for continuing education in Doctoral programmes.
