  • MS in Computational Finance & Risk Management (available on campus or online)

Funding opportunities

PhD program: financial support for doctoral studies is limited to five years after admission to the Ph.D. program in the Department of Applied Mathematics. Support for an additional period may be granted upon approval of a petition, endorsed by the student’s thesis supervisor, to the Graduate Program Coordinator.
