It is mandatory for students to possess basic training/experience in Finance, Mathematics or Computer Science before embarking on the program. This requirement can be satisfied by the possession of a prior academic degree with major/minor in one of the required fields, by the completion of a substantial number of courses in these fields or by related previous working experience.
