Economic analysis relies more and more on mathematical foundations. Optimal individual behaviour is found through the use of calculus, the dynamic properties of economics are studied with difference and differential equations, and important results in welfare economics are established from topological properties.
In areas of management consulting and financial institutions, advanced mathematics and computing are vital in determining the best strategy for the firm and for investing in different assets. The Economics courses consider the analysis of individual behaviour and markets, with options in financial and industrial economics and numerous other fields such as econometric analysis.
The Mathematics courses consider the fundamental properties of the Mathematics used, from calculus to probability and statistics, mathematical programming and game theory.
