I have been asked many times recently about what university course to take, and also what university to go too, etc. Some students ask me how does Financial Mathematics work? So I’ve come across an article here. This article illustrates how to be a quant, which is just one of the jobs available to someone who studies financial mathematics.
I want to clarify that studying Finance is a far cry from studying Financial Mathematics. They are very different. For the pragmatic students, the latter earns more. Is it easy? I shared some undergraduate reviews that I have done previously, here. It is on some simple ideas of Financial Mathematics, its basics.
So I want share a bit more in near future on studying Operations Research, Bayesian Methods, Data Mining and Analytics. Hopefully it will give students a better idea of studying Mathematics in university. And please remember, that H2 Mathematics is a far cry from University Mathematics. Students are better off doing Engineering if you fancy H2 Mathematics. And I am sorry that I can’t share too much on Pure Math, as the above mentioned are my forte.
Thanks! And now let’s all go for holidays!
