MathWorks

MathWorks is an American privately held corporation that specializes in mathematical computing software.

Its major products include MATLAB which provides an environment for programmers to analyze and visualize data and develop algorithms.

Monte Carlo simulation results for empirical densities returns (bars) and theoretical densities returns (lines) for two dynamic strategies.

“In finance, you only truly understand the theory after you implement it in code and run that code on data to see what it produces—all of which our students do in MATLAB. We know this approach is much appreciated by the industry because our graduates find jobs quite easily.”

Prof. Stefano Herzel, University of Rome Tor Vergata

How Finance and Banking Students Acquire Marketable Programming and Asset Pricing Skills

 

Stefano Herzel, professor of mathematics for economics and finance at Tor Vergata, teaches two courses that are very relevant to the master’s program: Coding for Financial Applications and Asset Pricing. By using MATLAB®, Herzel has improved learning outcomes by implementing an intuitive, hands-on approach to lectures and assignments.

MatLab Campus Licence

Our students can install MatLab (and about 50 toolboxes) on their laptops, and follow on line courses, thanks to the MatLab campus licence. 

MatLab Associate Certification

Moreover, our students have the opportunity to obtain the MATLAB Certification at Associate level by taking the test at Tor Vergata University of Rome.
