This flexible single-honours undergraduate master's degree programme is designed for those who are interested in learning about some of the recent applications of mathematics to the financial sector and pursuing a career in this area. It enables you to acquire a working knowledge of models and procedures and modern financial mathematics as applied in banks, broker companies and insurance companies as well as in the financial departments of national and international companies. You get good all-round mathematical knowledge together with the ability to experience more specialised results, methods and ideas. You get an education in sufficient depth in these areas to enable you to undertake postgraduate studies, conduct mathematical research or work as a specialist mathematician in industry, business or higher education.
You will cover core topics in the first year, developing your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas. In the second year you then choose two from three themes: Probability & Statistics, and a half of Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics, along with 20 credits from the Alliance Manchester Business School course units. You will understand the significance and power of mathematics, and will acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of the mathematical and financial topics that any employer would expect of a math with finance graduate.
After your first two years, you choose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue whichever areas of mathematics most interest you. You also undertake a substantial finance-related final year project.
