About the degree programme
Modern financial markets are quickly developing not only as a result of technological advancements, but also, and probably more importantly, as a result of the seamless integration of mathematical and statistical techniques into problem solving. Sri Lankan financial market is also growing at a rate comparable to international markets, thus, higher educational institutions are expected to offer more academic and research programs in related fields that will produce intellectual force capable of making optimal decisions and solving problems in related areas. As the only government university in the Southern region, we have understood our responsibility to cater the needs of the country in the fast-developing fields of finance and insurance. Accordingly, the Department of Mathematics offers a new four-year undergraduate honours degree programme in Financial Mathematics and Industrial Statistics.
