Main Information

The MMIF goal
is to train specialists able to develop new financial products, according to the current needs. We want that students be able to understand and discuss the assumptions and limitations of existing models. The Master is addressed to talented young students in possession of a degree in Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Economics, and Engineering or equivalent degrees. The specialists we are training today have a wide acceptation in the job market. More than 100 students who have completed the MMIF work nowadays in the financial system.
 
The partner institutions provide the necessary component of practical learning. Through them, we are able to establish a direct line of collaboration between the academic and professional worlds.
