Mathematics and Management course overview

The Mathematics and Management course is evenly divided between the two main subject areas, except in the first year when mathematics accounts for two-thirds of the course. It draws upon the expertise of both the Mathematical Sciences Department and the University's School of Business and Economics.

This course will equip graduates with mathematical knowledge backed up by sound business awareness, giving them a wide range of problem-solving skills which will be attractive to employers.

It is designed to appeal to students who are mathematically inclined and who also wish to develop a knowledge of management topics such as human resources management, marketing, company finance and strategic management.

Graduate destinations

Recent graduate destinations include: Microsoft, Cambridge County Council, Ten 3, Bloomberg, Santander, Arts Alliance Media, Deloitte, KPMG, Millennium Media

Industrial placements

All our courses are available as either full-time or sandwich courses, with the sandwich course including an extra year spent on professional training in an industrial, commercial or research establishment. The academic content of a full-time and a sandwich course is identical.

Satisfactory completion of the professional training in the sandwich course leads to the award of the Diploma in Professional Studies (DPS).

A variety of industrial, commercial and research companies have received our students in recent years and good relations have been established between these companies and the Mathematical Sciences Department.

Examples include Advantica, Ernst & Young, IBM, Aston Martin Lagonda, ICI, Hitachi and GSK. We are able to assist you to obtain suitable placements but the final responsibility rests with you.

Study abroad

If you choose one of our sandwich courses, an alternative to professional training is a year spent studying at a university in another country through a student exchange scheme, leading to the award of the Diploma in International Studies (DIntS).

We currently have exchange agreements with universities in: Germany, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Australia, Canada, Japan and USA.
