Program Overview

What Budapest University of Technology and Economics says about their program:
"The two-year MSc program in Applied Mathematics (math.bme.hu/masters/) provides a profound knowledge of applied mathematics, competitive both in the academic and non-academic sectors. Possible specializations are Stochastics and Financial Mathematics. Theoretical courses are taught mainly by internationally recognized scientists of the university, while applied courses are given mainly by experts from industry and finance who are actual appliers of mathematics. Students of our MSc program may enter leading-edge research projects of the Department of Stochastics (a cutting edge research centre in stochastics, the host of our MSc studies), or at one of the cooperating companies. Both specializations focus strongly on probability theory and statistics, so having an interest in these fields is essential, and a background in them is advantageous. Foundational courses are provided to those who need them. The students who complete our program have excellent career opportunities in the research sector (by becoming PhD students at either our university or some cutting-edge universities in the US or Europe), as well as in the commercial sector (by getting well-paid jobs at leading banks, insurance and consulting companies, or in the industry)."
