What is Mathematics and Management?
The ability to reason quantitatively and logically lies at the heart of many management decisions. This course is designed to equip students with the skills needed to succeed in a wide range of business and management careers.
This degree is designed for a comprehensive education in mathematics, probability and statistics integrated with the theory and practice of business management and entreprenuership. No previous knowledge of management or business studies is assumed.
How will I study?
Our programme is carefully designed to allow you to acquire the high level of cognition required to comprehend complex mathematical theories and rules, as well as the fundamentals of management and the most recent trends in business thinking. The joint disciplinary nature of the programme appeals to students who are mathematically inclined and who also wish to develop a knowledge of management topics such as human resource management, marketing, company finance and strategic management.
The Mathematics and Management cource is evenly divided between the two main subject areas, except in the first year when mathematics accounts for two-thirds of the course. It draws upon the expertise of both the Department of Applied Mathematics and Nottingham University Business School (NUBS).
Although industrial training is not a compulsory module under the current course structure, students are encouraged to look for a placement opportunity during the summer vacation after second year of study. Industrial training provides a great way to help students to identify top career prospects and enhance their soft skills.
Specific pathways within this course are accredited by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) as being of the appropriate breadth and depth to provide a foundation for a career as a professional statistician. Successful completion of these pathways (achieving second class honours or better) automatically qualifies you for the RSS Graduate Statistician (GradStat) status. This award is a stepping stone to full professional membership of the RSS and the Chartered Statistician (CStat) award. More details can be found on the Royal Statistical Society website.
The School has an agreement with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, under which students who obtain an average of more than 60% in any of the following combinations of modules will gain exemption from subject CT3 Probability and Mathematical Statistics.
