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.

Why choose this course?

Studying mathematics and management at the University of Nottingham Malaysia allows students to expand their mathematical knowledge while gaining sound business awareness. The course will help students to gain a wide range of problem-solving skills in order to become a sought-after graduate for logical thinking, statistical and strategic managerial positions.

Where you will learn

Malaysia Campus

Semenyih Campus is 48km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and just 45 minutes’ drive from the famous city centre with its iconic Petronas Twin Towers. On arrival, you are immersed in the green jungle backdrop that Malaysia provides with wildlife, sunshine and campus lake.

The campus is home to our business, education, science and engineering schools, which sit alongside a sports centre, library and student accommodation. The University has everything a modern day student could wish for with the added bonus of being located in central Asia allowing you to travel further afield in your free time.

Public transport is plentiful with free shuttle services operating on some routes. Taxi/Grab services in Malaysia are very reasonable and used widely by the student community.


This programme is a joint honours degree offered in conjunction with the Nottingham University Business School (NUBS). It prepares students for careers in finance, commerce, mathematical and statistical modelling as well as education. Students may choose to undergo further specialist training to qualify as accountants, actuaries and teachers or work in areas such as insurance, research and development, administration or management.

The University has an established Careers Advisory Service (CAS) that provide students with essential resources and guidance for career choices and offer many opportunities to develop the skills needed to plan and manage your future. Our Careers Advisory Service will work with you to improve and maximise your employability skills. As well as providing essential resources and guidance they will also assist you with job/course applications, facilitate searches for appropriate work experience placements and connect you to a wide range of prospective employers or training opportunities.
