The Department of Economics and the Department of Informatics and
Telecommunications of the University of the Peloponnese present
the first postgraduate program in Greece specialized in
Computational Finance. Computational finance is a cross-disciplinary
field, focusing on applying advanced computation methods to finance.
This typically includes:
1) Using advanced data management techniques for studying problems
in economics and finance.
2) Enabling the formulation of "what-if" questions, and subsequently
constructing relevant models and solving them by employing modeling
techniques and problem solving methods from the computer science domain.
The goal of the MSc program is to offer to its students advanced education
in Computational Finance, exploring both the theoretical and the practical
aspects. The students of the MSc programme acquire knowledge and skills
for a range of careers, including structured products, financial analytics
and quantitative portfolio management, IT services for financial products
and counseling. The MSc program accepts applications from graduates of Greek
and accredited non-Greek universities, with a specialization in finance,
economics, sciences and technology, engineering and related subjects.
Graduates from Greek T.E.I. having analogous specializations are also
eligible for admittance. The courses are taught in English and the duration
of the program is three (3) semesters.
