Phd in Financial Maths

Postby tuni.lash » Mon Jun 17, 2013 12:33 am

Dear Prof. Joshi, I have heard that a lot of the best masters programs in quantitative maths are in the US. As it is very expensive I have been told a way to do this is to apply for a PHD and to drop out after attaining a masters, (which I believe is possible to get after a year or two of a PHD) as doing a PHD is far cheaper. What do you think of this approach? Another question; even more simply, if I want to work as a financial analyst, is a masters in financial maths the best way to get there? Kind Regards.

use the careers forum for careers questions.

Anything that looks like an unfinished degree looks bad.

There are lots of sorts of financial analysts. FInancial maths qualifications are only important if you want to be
a quantitative analyst.
