Course overview

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 entrepreneurship. No previous knowledge of management or business studies is assumed.

Course structure

In each year of the Honours programme, students must take modules accruing 120 credits. In the first year, 80 of these credits are in mathematics and 40 credits in management studies. In the second and third years, the students take 60 credits in each of the two disciplines.

During the first year (Qualifying year), students will study core mathematics with modules in analytical and computational foundations, calculus and linear mathematics, as well as modules in probability and statistics.  In the management studies, students take modules such as entrepreneurship, business economics and organisational behaviour. 
 
In the second and third years, the focus will equally split between mathematics and management, with the opportunity to study a range of optional modules so much so that students can tailor the course to their own interests.
