You will incorporate mathematical and statistical training with finance and accounting, including general financial theory and its applications to business and commerce. The first year consists of six modules of mathematics and statistics and two modules of finance and accounting, and there are two finance and accounting modules in the second year. Overall, about two-thirds of your modules will be in mathematics and statistics and the other third in finance and accounting. 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.
