About the programme

The Financial and Actuarial Mathematics specialization, established in 1994 and supervised by members of the Hugo Steinhaus Center, was the first such a program in Poland and one of the first in Europe. For over 12 years it has been a highly successful curriculum, providing students with solutions to a number of industry's most intriguing questions. It has attracted attention of the best high school students in Wrocław and Southwest Poland, in part because the graduates (10-15 a year) have no problems with finding good jobs in the finance and insurance sectors in Poland and abroad.

The Financial and Actuarial Mathematics curriculum covers the MIC Master "Mathematics for Industry and Commerce" educational requirements. The seminar on mathematical modelling for industry and graduate courses for the Technomathematics curriculum will begin soon. All of the mentioned factors are clearly paving the way for Econo- and Technomathematics studies at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology according to the ECMI standards.
