The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL has been created to foster research in finance and to develop a strong offering of programs in finance and financial engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The focus is on the areas within finance that have a natural interaction with mathematics, statistics, engineering, and science, namely, mathematical finance, financial econometrics, and entrepreneurial finance.
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL participates in two teaching programs, The Master in Financial Engineering at EPFL, which is a highly selective 2-year master program, and The Doctoral Program in Finance, which is organized jointly with the Swiss Finance Institute and the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne.
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL benefits from the institutional support of the Swiss Finance Institute, a private foundation created in 2006 by Switzerland’s banking and finance community in cooperation with leading Swiss universities, and from Swissquote, who endowed the Swissquote Chair in Quantitative Finance.
