Founded in 1996 by an exceptional team of educators, the University of Chicago’s Financial Mathematics Program has had the honor of shaping some of the brightest minds in the financial industry today. A pioneer in its field, our Program offers 15 months of accelerated, integrated coursework that explores the deep-rooted relationship that exists between theoretical and applied mathematics and the ever-evolving world of finance. Our mission is to equip our students with a solid foundation in mathematics, and in doing so provide them with practical knowledge that they can successfully apply to complicated financial models. Our students become leaders in their field; program alumni have gone forth to find success at companies like JP Morgan, UBS, and Goldman Sachs.

Located in Hyde Park, the University of Chicago is well known for housing great minds. Our Program, with its unmatched student body and highly accomplished faculty, works hard to uphold the University’s core values by creating an atmosphere that encourages intellectual collaboration and growth.
