Was lernen Sie in diesem Kurs?
Assessing and controlling different types of risks are key responsibilities in the financial sector. The quality of risk management processes is a crucial factor in the success or failure of the business. Increasingly complex financial products, various regulations and the enormous importance of information technology have created a great challenge both to financial and non-financial companies. Mastering these challenges requires a thorough understanding of complex financial strategies, financial modelling ability, computational proficiency, and eventually, managerial vision.
In response to this demand, our Master’s Program in Financial Engineering offers a unique combination of familiarity to finance theory, engineering methods, management tools, mathematical and computational techniques. With its long tradition of interdisciplinary programs, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) provides an ideal interdisciplinary environment. Building on the long-established reputation for excellence in business engineering, the two-part program combines an in-depth knowledge and understanding of fundamental concepts in business, finance, and management in the first half, with the latest developments in financial engineering in the second half.
With the pace of financial innovation, the need for highly qualified people trained in financial engineering also increases. A demanding career in a financial company such as an investment or commercial bank, an exchange or a rating agency would be an ideal place to work, with the abilities attained in the program. The techniques are also to the utmost benefit for the candidate that pursues a career in a non-financial corporate, since the material covered is well applicable to corporate finance, and corporate risk management.
