The Center will offer an educational program consisting of Standard Programs (corresponding to M.A. programs) and Advanced Programs (corresponding to Ph.D. programs).
Standard Programs include three courses: (A) Mathematical quantitative finance course <Graduate School of Engineering Science>, (B) Financial economics/engineering course <Graduate School of Economics> and (C) Insurance course <Graduate School of Science>. Students who take this program must choose one of the courses and are expected to participate as members of the respective graduate schools. In addition, Standard Programs will serve as reeducation programs for working people and as training programs for businesspersons in financial institutions.
Advanced Programs will offer education equivalent to conventional Ph.D.-level education, ensuring that new advances in the fields of financial engineering, mathematical finance and actuarial science, which have rapidly developed in the past 20 years, are incorporated in the Center's educational program.
In both the Standard and Advanced Programs we plan to offer various other courses, including intensive training courses mainly for businesspersons, so as to flexibly meet requests for practical business education. In addition, the Center will compile and publish a series of notes based on lectures given at the Center.
Examples of lecture topics: Application of Malliavin analysis to numerical analysis, Credt risk modeling, Volatility tracking, Risk measurement and optimal designing etc.
