Start of the Early Stream ProgramOn Thursday, November 17, the General Director of the Foundation, Head of Quantitative research of VTB Bank, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Kirill Klimov, which will open a series of review lectures for 2nd year students of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University.
At the first lecture of the cycle, Kirill Klimov will talk about how quantum sees the work of the corporate investment business. You will learn what the time value of money is, what are the risks and can they be measured? Why are derivatives needed, who is hedging them and why? And, of course, you will find the answer to the most important question - how can mathematics help in all this?
At the end of April, students will be selected for the joint specialization of the Vega Institute Foundation and the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics “Financial Mathematics - Stochastics and Economics”.
For attending lectures and active participation in the Early Stream, students who wish to study for a specialization will receive additional points to the final assessment during selection. Detailed information about the rules and selection criteria will be published on the website of the specialization.
You can register for the lecture cycle on the Early Stream page.
Questions about the Early Stream program and specialization can be asked in the Telegram channel of the Foundation's educational programs.
