FIN312 Mathematics and Programming for FinTech aims to equip students with suitable mathematical and programming skills to measure data, to read, understand, apply and implement models, so as to provide solutions to problems that arise from both conventional finance as well as FinTech. The course builds up the ability to interpret with mathematical models, and then to translate the models into a programming language for implementation. This is a valuable and repeatable skill in the digitalised world. A single, well-known, programming language (e.g. Python) is used throughout the course to help the student pick up knowledge around the art of translation as well as to be able to efficiently handle financial data and to reason with it. Various scenarios from finance, ranging from the traditional setting of risk and return to the modern setting of FinTech, are used as examples to reinforce the link between mathematical modelling and programming.
