The mathematics element of the programme draws upon the Computing Department’s strength in Data Analysis, concentrating on the branches of Mathematics most applicable in an Economics context: Calculus, Optimisation, Linear Algebra, Statistical Inference. Students on this programme will also learn data-rich programming. This is just one of the ways that this is a particularly hands-on, practical programme. Goldsmiths Computing Department is internationally known for its creative approach to computation and to data analysis and visualisation. In this programme, students will learn to create systems with the potential to solve real-world economic problems. The Economics element allows you to investigate economics from different theoretical and empirical perspectives, developing an understanding of the social and business context of economics today.

They will be equipped to begin in great variety of environments, such as accountancy firms, banking, government agencies, consultancy firms, beginning many possible types of career such as accountancy, actuarial studies, data analytics and financial planning. The programme is made up of a combination of modules in pure mathematics, economics, statistical analysis, and applied programming.
