This course, accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), integrates maths and finance, blending theory and real-world practice. Two-thirds of the course concentrates on developing mathematical abilities, with a third taught by specialists in the university’s Business School. There is an emphasis on exploring and communicating mathematics in a clear way, and students learn to apply their learning meaningfully and in a wide range of contexts. Students have the opportunity to spend a year on a professional placement to build experience and a network of contacts. The mathematics department at the University of Brighton has SAS Academy status.
