The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study.
Mathematics is a method of applying logical and quantitative analysis to natural and manmade phenomena. Programs in financial mathematics aim to prepare students in the use of these investigative and predictive tools to analyze business trends.

The program is based on a mathematical background, which involves probability theory, stochastic processes, mathematical and computational statistics, optimization, econometrics, operational research, financial and insurance mathematics. The connected creative work is represented especially by the basic mathematical research, and partly by applications, e.g. in finance and insurance. The doctoral students enhance their knowledge in advanced courses and seminars, according to their individual study plans. Under the supervision of their advisor, they provide research work in a given topic and publish their results and presents them at scientific conferences. The study branch will prepare experts who can become successors of faculty professors, others will profit from their mathematical thought in practice....
