Programme Overview The uncertainty in an event or an activity is known as risk. Risks are encountered in trivial events such as travelling and in professional activities such as business partnership. We take risk every day. This course provides a broad perspective on both current practices and mathematical theories of risk management. Topics include qualitative and quantitative classifications of risks, mathematical modelling of financial markets and derivatives, current financial issues and crises, and statistical analysis of financial data, mathematics of insurance and actuarial science. This course is designed for the students who are interested in the scientific and mathematical aspects of risk management, financial market and actuarial science.
