Apply for Master of Science in Quantitative Finance

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance Programme, as envisioned by Amrut Mody School of Management at Ahmedabad University, is a unique programme in the country for it focuses on imparting advanced quantitative techniques that are required for students who are intent on pursuing a career in Financial Modelling, Asset Management, Risk Mitigation, and Investment Banking. Unlike specialised programmes that are offered in silos, this Programme offers ample avenues to the students to make the most out of the broader liberal arts university ecosystem that encourages and nurtures interdisciplinarity.

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance is a two-year postgraduate programme. The Programme is a confluence of mathematics, financial markets, and economics. The contents and the depth of the courses offered in this Programme have been arrived at keeping in view the demands and the expectations of the industry. Master of Science in Quantitative Finance graduates will have a deep understanding of the mathematical underpinnings of financial markets. They would possess requisite coding skills and should be in a position to apply the quantitative techniques in a real-world context to address empirical anomalies. The pedagogy consists of, and is not limited to, faculty-led classroom discussions, simulation exercises, case analysis/group activities, workshops, and practitioner interactions.
