The application procedure for Master in Mathematical Finance Program is administered by Illinois Tech Office of Graduate Admission. See below for contact information.
- Bachelor's degree in mathematics, engineering, or an equivalent must be completed prior to enrollment with a minimum grade-point average of 3.0/4.0. Applicants are required to have a background in undergraduate level probability theory, multivariate calculus, and linear algebra. A background in ordinary differential equations will enhance the chance of admission to the program.
- Minimum GRE scores: 310 (quantitative and verbal), 2.5 (analytical writing)
- Applicants from non-English-speaking countries must submit TOEFL scores. A minimum paper-based score of 600, computer-based score of 250, and internet-based score of 100 is required.
- Submit an essay responding to the following questions:
- Why do you wish to pursue graduate study in the Master of Mathematical Finance program? Define your five-year career plan, and discuss how you believe graduate studies will contribute to your professional goals. How will this joint College of Science/Stuart Business School degree fit into your plans?
- Two letters of recommendation
Some applicants may be required to take prerequisite courses if they lack a significant foundation for the program. An interview for admission may also be required. You may transfer a maximum of two equivalent graduate courses from other institutions—subject to the condition that these courses have not been used to earn a graduate degree. Students are only allowed to start the Master of Mathematical Finance program in the fall semester, but students who already possess an advanced degree may be approved to begin the program at a different time of year.
