Mathematics of Insurance, Economics and Finance (MASEF) - Master's Year 2

Program Objectives

The MASEF (Mathematics of Insurance, Economics and Finance) track trains future high-level probabilistic mathematicians in mathematical techniques used in risk management and in economics. The balance between basic courses and those intended to be more practical provides students with a program allowing them to choose one of various specializations geared to academic research or industry positions with a strong quantitative component. The main job opportunities are in banking, but also include sectors requiring rare skills related to optimization in random and/or uncertain environments (energy industry, online auctions, etc.).

Program objectives:

  • Master the basics of optimization, decision-making, and risk coverage in uncertain environments with or without interactions.
  • Gain significant expertise in the use of digital and statistical tools, including machine learning methods.
  • Master advanced techniques in quantitative finance.
  • Acquire the perspective needed to adapt to change, whether in research or industry.
