Financial Engineering Education in Korea Yoo, Shi-Yong; Kim, Sahm;
Korean financial markets are rapidly integrating into the world financial markets as they are getting to open more widely. The Korean government enacted new law about financial investments. The environment of domestic financial markets are expected to be more competitive. As a result, the learning demand for financial engineering has been increased. However, the current state of education of financial engineering is in a beginning stage. The financial engineering consists of an appropriate mix of mathematics, statistics, finance and engineering. So interdisciplinary property of financial engineering requires lecturers to be cooperative to operate education of financial engineering. Another element of this education is cooperation of both academia and industry.
