The course

This joint programme allows you to explore the world of abstract mathematical ideas and their practical applications, whilst building a strong skill set across all the key areas of business management, from strategy to marketing, accounting to e-commerce. You will develop practical skills in areas such as logistics, budgeting, inventory control and scheduling, as well as transferable skills in communication and teamwork, numeracy, data handling and analysis, logical thinking and creative problem-solving.

Guided by world-class researchers and inspirational teachers, you will gain a solid grounding in all the key methods and concepts of mathematical study, whilst studying cutting-edge theories and practices from the world of business. Whilst there are some core mathematics courses that all students take, you will also be free to choose from a wide range of optional courses, thanks to the programme’s flexible, modular structure. Mathematics will make up 75% of your final degree, with management contributing the remaining 25%.

Both departments offer a friendly and motivating learning environment and a strong focus on small group teaching and academic support. We offer generous office hours and a dedicated personal adviser to guide you through your studies, as well as CV writing workshops and a competitive work placement scheme.
