## Statistical Finance Certification

Certificate programs appeal to students who do not want to commit to the full financial mathematics master's degree program. Upon successful completion of five courses focused on a specific set of concepts, a student will earn a post-baccalaureate certificate in that area. The certificate programs are designed as mini-programs in focus areas. Thus, each includes the capstone applied research experience of Mathematics Clinic, MTH 541. The five courses required for the Certificate in Statistical Finance are:

- MTH 543 or ENM 501
- MTH 544 or ENM 530
- MTH 563/MBA 623
- MTH 558
- MTH 559

### Program Details

Mathematics is the study of shape and form, of numbers and patterns, of concrete examples and abstract generalizations. As a discipline, mathematics is not easy to categorize. We offer a Bachelor of Science in mathematics, a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics and a Bachelor of Science in applied mathematical economics (in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Finance). We also offer a Master of Science in applied mathematics.### Admission Requirements

- Completion of a graduate application for admission to a certificate program at the University of Dayton.
- Bachelor's degree in a science or technical area such as mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, economics, or finance, and at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
- Prerequisite mathematics coursework in calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, elementary probability, and statistics
- Programming skills.

Students applying for a certificate must be enrolled in the certificate program and must have completed the requirement of five courses with a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0.

Students cannot simultaneously be admitted to the Master of Financial Mathematics and one of the certificate programs. Students can be simultaneously enrolled in any other post-baccalaureate program at the University of Dayton and a certificate program. Students must meet the entrance standards of the Master of Financial Mathematics to gain admission to a certificate program.
