Our Master’s program in Financial Engineering  offers you a unique combination of finance theory, engineering methods,  management tools, mathematical and computational techniques – blended  with new developments from the field of artificial intelligence and data  science. Financial Engineering introduces you to these techniques in a  practical way, with a focus on hands on applications implemented in the  Python programming language.

Focus Points of Financial Engineering

  • Data Science
  • Machine Learning For Business And Finance Innovations
  • Data-Driven Decision Making
  • Financial And Risk Management With Python

“We see modern Financial Engineering as the science of  data-driven decision making in business environments. Building more  accurate models reduces uncertainty around future events and paths the  way to better decision making. It is a mix of broad decision-making  applications, sound data and modeling work, paired with an  entrepreneurial drive to solve innovation challenges using modern  software and financial thinking, that makes our Master’s Program in  Financial Engineering a unique experience.”
Prof. Dr. Maxim Ulrich
