This specialization teaches students advanced probabilistic mathematical finance, including derivatives, the study of interest rates, risk analysis and numerical methods. 


Graduates of this degree lean primarily towards the research departments of financial establishments in France, Europe (London) and the rest of the World (USA, Asia). A small proportion of graduates pursue academic careers after completion of their PhD. 


The year is divided between a semester of intensive classes (from September 15 to March 31) and a semester-long internship in a financial establishment (from April 1 to September 30).
