BSc (Hons) Management Mathematics
UCAS code: NG21
If you have done well at maths at school and are looking to divide your time at university between maths and business, this three-year combined degree in Management Mathematics may be just right for you.
Run jointly by two top-ranked departments – Management Science and Mathematics and Statistics – it helps you explore how Mathematics informs decision-making processes in business, industry and government.
You will analyse the development and application of solutions to real managerial problems by using mathematical and computer-based models alongside visual or verbal representations. An extensive range of options in areas such as business statistics, business modelling and simulation, demand forecasting and revenue management means that you can tailor your degree to your own interests. You will also be able to broaden your knowledge by selecting modules from other management disciplines such as marketing, accounting, economics or human relations.
Access a wide range of careers
The logical and analytical skills that students develop by studying Management Science and Mathematics transfer readily to many different occupational settings and are appreciated by a wide variety of employers. The degree therefore gives an ideal foundation for careers in the private sector, in consultancy firms, in the manufacturing or service sector or in the public sector, for example, in the NHS. See our graduate profiles to find out what some of our graduates are now doing.
In your first year to make up one of your Part I units, you take a module on Introduction to Business Analytics and another on Management Science/Operational Research. You will also take a Part I unit in the Maths and Statistics Department, and one further Part I unit.
Years 2 and 3
You have considerable freedom in what modules you choose but must take at least seven half-unit modules in the Department of Management Science, including Optimisation (MSCI 222), Business Modelling and Simulation (MSCI 223) and two Project Management modules (MSCI 251 and MSCI 252). You will also take further modules in Maths and Statistics.
Of the eight units that make up the degree, you will need to take at least 3.5 units in Management Science – excluding any MSCI courses in Statistics.
