Bachelor's Programme in Mathematical Finance
180 ECTS credits - 3 years - Kristiansand
Admission to the programme requires two years of mathematics at the upper secondary school level.
In addition to two years of mathematics at the upper secondary school level, courses in business economics and english at this level are recommended as well.
The aim of the programme is to provide basic knowledge in financial economics with relevant mathematics and statistics.
Arrangements for the recognition of prior learning are described in the information on the institution under "General arrangements for the recognition of prior learning (formal, informal and non-formal)".
For a description of the examination regulations, see the Examination Regulations of the University of Agder.
For information about the Norwegian grading system, see ECTS credits and grades. Specific information on grading for each course is found in the individual course descriptions.
The Examination Regulations of the University of Agder regulate the graduation requirements for each programme of study.
On successful completion of the programme, the student should be able to
- show a basic understanding of main topics in economics and business administration (finance, accounting, micro- and macro-economics, strategy and management)
- apply and understand mathematical and statistical techniques commonly used in financial economics
- formulate investment decisions, analyze profit and loss (P/L) statements and analyze the risk inherent in such decisions
- apply software relevant for mathematics and financial economics
Teaching will be a blend of plenary lectures, instruction at the computer lab and team work assignments.
There are compulsory tasks (hand ins et cetera) in all courses. There will be final examinations in all courses. Please see separate course descriptions for more information.
In parts of the second and the third year there are possibilities for studying abroad.
This programme is a very suitable basis for master
programmes in economics, financial economics, financial
engineering and mathematical finance at Norwegian and foreign
universities. The programme qualifies for graduate programmes
within economics and management (for instance master programmes
at NHH or UiA).
The programme qualifies for jobs in private and public sector generally, and especially for banks, insurance and financial institutions.
The programme provides the academic skills necessary for teaching mathematics at primary and lower secondary level, and economics and mathematics at the upper secondary level. Having fulfilled the one-year teacher training programme, the students are qualified for entering the master programme in mathematics didactics at UiA .
