Undergraduate degree programmes
The undergraduate degrees offered within the Department of Management Science are perfect for those who have excelled at Mathematics or Statistics at school and are looking for challenging graduate careers where they can use their problem-solving skills to help businesses perform better.
The degree schemes are designed to develop the kind of skills required by business analysts and consultants working in many different types of organisation. As with all Lancaster programmes, the modular design of these degrees makes them very flexible, allowing you to focus on your main interests but also to broaden your knowledge by including modules from other management areas – or other disciplines entirely.
What can I study?
From 2013 our well-established Single Majors in Management Science, Operations Management and Project Management have given way to a new suite of programmes:
- Business Analytics and Consultancy
Three linked programmes, including variants that offer a year on industrial placement or studying abroad at an American university
- Management Mathematics
A Combined Major, run in conjunction with the University’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and ideal for those seeking a larger component of Mathematics
