This programme gives a foundation in mathematics and statistics with a selection of modules in business management, finance and accounting. You will combine six mathematics and statistics modules with two business management and finance modules in your first year. In subsequent years the mix is five mathematics and statistics modules and three business management and finance modules. Mathematics is extremely important in the business and finance sector, and this degree programme will give you the necessary mathematical knowledge and skills, backed up with an awareness of how the sector operates. Mathematics is concerned with finding patterns and solving problems. Every day we encounter patterns, which can be described using mathematics, for example, in numbers, shapes or data. We can use mathematics to identify these patterns, solve problems, inspire new technologies and make informed decisions. Mathematics is for people who are prepared to think logically and creatively and then explain those thoughts precisely. It is a demanding discipline: finding patterns and solving problems isn’t always easy, but discovering the correct answer to a difficult problem is very rewarding. At university, you will discover a new world of concepts and ideas. You will encounter new kinds of mathematical objects and investigate their common features and abstract natures. But it is not all abstract: our statistics and finance modules are very much about the real world – you will use mathematical skills to extract information from data and draw conclusions.
