Quantitative Asset and Risk Management (ARIMA) Master’s Degree Program at UE Katowice

ARIMA is a program conducted entirely in English, which in a practical way shows the use of quantitative methods in finance and insurance.

The specialization program emphasizes the practical possibilities of risk measurement and evaluation in every aspect of asset management (both in the financial and insurance markets). A student of this specialization has a unique opportunity to obtain an additional diploma (the so-called double degree) after obtaining at least 30 ECTS at one of the partner universities (University of Bologna, University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna), or 60 ECTS points at the University of Florence.

In addition, thanks to the CFA™ and GARP™ accreditations, the best students can receive subsidies for exams (Chartered Financial Analyst, Financial Risk Manager), while the PRMIA accreditation allows students to pass 1 out of 2 PRM™ (Professional Risk Manager) exams.

Studies delivered only in English
