Welcome to the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics

The Department brings together research and teaching in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics in a single Department which creates significant inter-disciplinary synergies.

Our teaching is informed by the latest research and by the needs of employers. We offer a wide selection of graduate, undergraduate and 'conversion' courses in economics, finance, mathematics and statistics. In addition we also provide customised in-house training to various government departments and city firms.

Over the past 20 years the subject of Financial Risk Management has emerged as a branch of mathematical and statistical science in its own right. Furthermore, the events surrounding the current financial crisis will ensure that it will remain crucial in the years ahead; this is already evident in the increased demand in the financial sector for individuals with quantitative skills in this field.

Find our more about our MSc Financial Risk Management programme and the training in the mathematical, statistical and computational skills that make up the essential toolkit of a quantitative risk manager in a modern financial institution.
