About this course

Mathematicians are in demand in business and finance. Their skills are used to develop techniques from forecasting changes in stock and commodity markets to supporting financial products such as stock options and futures. You’ll graduate with a strong background in finance and strong quantitative skills. This could lead to a career in international banking, accountancy, the stock market, financial consultancy, government or the civil service.

The BSc Mathematics with Finance course provides a firm foundation in areas such as algebra, calculus and differential equations. It also develops the area of statistics and its importance in finance and gives a grounding in micro and macroeconomics.

As part of this course you’ll:

  • develop your abilities in problem-solving, accurate calculation and logical argument

  • study portfolio analysis, financial management, accounting, international banking and futures and options

  • use our student centre, a dedicated learning and social space for maths students

  • use mathematical and computational packages such as Python and the statistics package 'R'

You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures and workshops, by leading researchers in fields, such as business and trade statistics, survey measurement and data integration.
