Introduction

The Master’s specialisation in Quantitative Finance is suited for talented and motivated students with an interest in studying finance from an econometric point of view. Given the quantitative nature of this Master’s specialisation, students are expected to have a strong interest in, and prior knowledge of statistics, mathematics, and econometrics.

The Master’s specialisation in Quantitative Finance aims to provide high-quality training to enable graduates to pursue careers in the financial industry, or to excel in science. Graduates are able to apply existing quantitative techniques and econometric models to complex real-world financial problems. Furthermore, graduates are trained to develop and apply new models if required.

Career prospects

Graduates of the Master’s specialisation in Quantitative Finance have excellent job prospects for a wide range of positions within the finance industry. In particular, the acquired knowledge is suitable for quantitative areas such as option pricing and hedging (large banks), risk management (large banks and financial institutions, as well as large companies), research groups, fund managers and consulting, including consulting on Asset Liability Management. Graduates from the Econometric Institute have excellent reputations and can always find jobs easily in the Netherlands or abroad. For example, even during their Master’s year, several of our students took up traineeships at the head office of several investment banks (including JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank) in London.
