Mathematics is a stimulating and rewarding degree choice, and Mathematics graduates are highly sought after for their analytical skills and problem-solving abilities.

Applied mathematicians use mathematical theories and procedures, like modeling and computational methods, to find solutions and formulas to business, government, engineering, physical, and life and social science problems. Industry relies on Applied Mathematics for the design and development of various products. Applied mathematics is at the heart of many processes and services.

The Special Degree in ‘Finance, Business and Computational Mathematics’ provides high level instructions in the mathematical theory underlying finance, and training in appropriate computational methods. It offers many benefits to our students such as;

  • development of student understanding of quantitative methodologies and techniques that are important for a range of jobs in banks and other financial institutions,
  • preparation for a range of careers in the financial sector, industry and research,
  • opportunity to improve personal skills, including logical reasoning, quantitative analysis, and the presentation of technical results.
