All courses are developed specifically for the mmf Program, taught in our assigned classroom, and are available only to mmf students. The schedule is independent of the University of Toronto's regular academic calendar. Classes commence in the third week of August and last until the end of July.
The Fall Session runs from August through December. Coursework includes these topic areas: computing, financial concepts, probability, math, statistics, math finance and finance. You will also be interviewing for internships during this session.
The Winter Session runs from January through April. The main focus is on the internship placement or its equivalent academic project. A mandatory course in Advanced Derivatives is taught at Rotman School of Management.
The Summer Session runs from the end of April through July. The first eight weeks of this session contain courses that deepen the material learned in the fall session as these courses are able to build upon the professional experience the students have acquired through their internship. At the end are two 2-week workshops in which the students work in small groups on substantial projects in mathematical finance and risk management.
