Mathematics with Management

Overview

The perfect degree for the mathematically gifted student with ambitions to be the future leader of a major organisation.

By studying Mathematics with Management, you’ll combine the numerical and analytical skills and rigour of a mathematics degree with strong business acumen.

You’ll study pure, discrete, decision and modern applied mathematics, probability and statistics. Tailored business modules will help you to develop skills suited to a future career in a financial institution, technology company or multinational corporation, learning alongside other mathematicians and scientists.

Management modules have a particular emphasis on social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations. You’ll cover topics such as financial accounting, entrepreneurship, business analytics, strategy and economics, providing you with an in-depth understanding of the corporate environment.

Study options

Apply for this degree with any of the following options. Take care to use the correct UCAS code - it may not be possible to change your selection later.

Professional Placement

Apply for our Mathematics with Management BSc with Professional Placement to spend a year carrying out paid work in the financial sector as part of your degree. As well as helping you to stand out from the crowd and secure graduate employment, a placement is an excellent opportunity to develop your business skills and put your learning into context.

Year abroad

Go global and study abroad as part of your degree – apply for our Mathematics with Management BSc with a Year Abroad. Queen Mary has links with universities in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia (partnerships vary for each degree programme).

Find out more about study abroad opportunities at Queen Mary and what the progression requirements are.

You can do either a year in a professional placement or a year abroad - you cannot combine these options.

Testimonial

I like the opportunities that my course provides to enhance my employability skills. For example, with the fantastic opportunity to take the Excel qualification I now have an extra set of skills that will improve my chances of securing a job!

Teaching and Facilities

Teaching and learning

You’ll learn through lectures and tutorials, and in exercise classes where students work together on problems, discuss ideas and ask questions. Some modules have a practical element presented in one of our computer labs.

Formal teaching time typically takes up 16 hours each week. You’ll also be expected to complete additional hours of independent study.

Assessment

Most of your modules will be assessed by an examination worth at least 90 per cent of the year’s study, with the remainder covered by coursework and tests. Some BSc students will also complete a final-year project.

Management modules are assessed using a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June.

Resources and facilities

The School of Mathematical Sciences is investing £18m to create an inspiring, collaborative space for our community of students and staff, due for completion in April 2019. The building will include high-quality teaching rooms, private and group study areas and a new social hub.

You’ll also have access to a purpose-built media suite designed to support student entrepreneurship.
