If you have advanced math skills, consider a master's degree in mathematical finance...

Financial Mathematics is one of the fastest growing areas of applied mathematics. Institutions that employ financial mathematicians are amongst the wealthiest and most sophisticated corporations in the world. Pursuing a career in financial mathematics will provide you with an invigorating combination of intellectual challenge and accelerated professional growth.

A fast-track program.

In the University of Toronto's 12-month Program, your superior math skills are focused on the tools of financial mathematics for an initial 4-month period. You then move immediately into an internship with a firm. Afterwards, you continue your coursework for the remainder of the school year.

Applied mathematics in business is as demanding and interesting as it is in the sciences, engineering or technology.

You may join a risk management team in an institution (hedge fund, bank, government, pension plan) with multibillion-dollar investment portfolios. You may use advanced mathematics to manage sophisticated hedge funds and portfolios of complex derivatives. You may be assessing the risk in a bank's commercial loans portfolios or developing original software applications for financial markets. Nobel Prizes have been awarded for work in financial mathematics.
