Overview

This programme produces graduates with a good finance background and strong quantitative skills, making them highly employable. Graduates can look forward to careers in a wide variety of financial areas: in the stock market, in international banking, in business, in government and the civil. The mathematics component of the programme provides a firm foundation in the main areas of mathematics, and then develops the area of statistics further, as statistics is particularly important in finance. The finance component begins with a grounding in micro and macro economics, looks at the principles of finance, and focuses on portfolio analysis, international banking, and futures and options.

Transfer to this programme is normally only possible early in Semester 1 from a number of other programmes in the School.

Career opportunities

Mathematicians are in great demand throughout business, but particularly in the financial sector as a whole. You can look forward to a career in areas such as international banking, accountancy, the stock market, financial consultancy, government and the civil service. In recent years mathematicians have developed sophisticated techniques which help to forecast some of the fluctuations which take place in world stock and commodity markets and underpin many financial products such as stock options and futures.

As well as studying the relevant mathematics, you will encounter such subjects as economics, accounting, financial management and the interesting area of futures and options.
