### 课程概况

Due to challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, start dates for the MITx MicroMasters® Program in Finance courses have been postponed until Fall 2020.

Please note: the dates listed for each course are tentative and subject to change. If we make any further changes to the program schedule, we will share this information with you via email, and make it available on our website.

Modern finance is the science of decision making in an uncertain world, and its language is mathematics. As part of the MicroMasters® Program in Finance, this course develops the tools needed to describe financial markets, make predictions in the face of uncertainty, and find optimal solutions to business and investment decisions.

This course will help anyone seeking to confidently model risky or uncertain outcomes. Its topics are essential knowledge for applying the theory of modern finance to real-world settings. Quants, traders, risk managers, investment managers, investment advisors, developers, and engineers will all be able to apply these tools and techniques.

The course is excellent preparation for anyone planning to take the CFA exams.
