Stochastics and Financial Mathematics is a research-oriented two-year Master's programme in mathematics. Its strong focus on finance and its close ties with the financial and consultancy sector in the Amsterdam area are unique in the Netherlands. This programme is highly valued by the professional field for its top-level theoretical education in areas ranging from Financial Mathematics, Data Analytics and Statistics to Probability and Decision Making.
The academic year 2020-2021 will start as planned in September. We expect small-scale on-site attendance, within the guidelines of the Dutch government, will be possible once again from September. This means we will be providing a form of hybrid education in the first semester, partly on-campus and partly online. From 1 July it will be clear what our hybrid education is going to look like.
Admission during COVID-19
In exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree or pre-Master’s. The study delay must be COVID-19 related and concern courses from the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year (February through June 2020). Check the Application and Admission pages for more information.
There is a wide range of specialisations available, based on the many areas in which stochastics is applied, their scope and the challenging problems they pose. Both theoretically inclined and more practically oriented students can select specific courses to suit their personal interests.
If you are interested in SFM and Econometrics, the University of Amsterdam offers a unique double degree programme for talented students (150 EC). This very dense and challenging programme allows you to obtain the degrees from both fields. You will do only one interdisciplinary research project and write one integrated thesis with supervisors from both disciplines. In order to follow this programme, you should meet the criteria for admission into both Master's programmes.
