General information

A minor in Finance is available to students in the university’s Mathematics for Science and Industry , and Physics  programs. Mathematics is a key component of problem solving, from the modelling of atmospheric physics to the complexities of managing risk in financial markets. For instance, computational finance focuses on the measurement, management and analysis of financial risk, and detailed insight into numerical and computational techniques in the pricing, hedging and risk management of financial instruments. Furthermore, it is well understood and noticed that modern finance is becoming increasingly technical, requiring the use of sophisticated mathematical tools in both research and practice. 

Students wishing to take this minor should consult with their academic advisor for suggested program maps.
