Internationalizing the Mathematical Finance Course
Okonkwo, Zephyrinus C.
International Research and Review, v6 n2 p103-119 Spring 2017
About the year 2000, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Albany State University (ASU), Albany, Georgia, USA envisioned the need to have a comprehensive curriculum revision based on recommendations of the Conference Boards of The Mathematical Sciences, the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of American, and based on the need to create attractive career pathways for our students in emerging fields and professions. Many Mathematics graduates were progressing to graduate schools in the fields of Applied Mathematics and Statistics. In subsequent years, our graduates started seeking jobs in the financial sector to become portfolio managers, Wall Street traders, bankers, insurers, and wealth fund managers. MATH 4330 Mathematics of Compound Interest course was created to give our students the opportunity to garner strong background to become confident future wealth managers. This course is inherently an attractive course to internationalize as economic growth is in the national interest of every nation, and the deep understanding of national and international financial institutions' functions is most essential. In this paper, I present the internationalization of Math 4330 Mathematics of Compound Interest, the associated outcomes, and the broader impact on students.
