Mathematics

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Business Management and Mathematics. For the Business Management element of the course, you will reflect critically on what you learn about business,
to challenge received wisdom, and to think for yourself about the theories
you encounter. There’s a specialist approach to Business Management at Keele
which distinguishes it from traditional business studies. It emphasises
independent thinking, and examines those places where business
comes into contact with social-scientific and philosophical disciplines.
You’ll explore concepts and debates in organisational behaviour,
accounting, marketing, and human resource management, including
decision making behaviour across the private and public sectors.
You’ll learn to reflect broadly on situations and to contextually apply
what you know. You’ll graduate as a confident, analytical thinker – a skill very much in
demand among employers. You’ll be interested in this course if you’d
like to pursue a career in management or self-employment. You could
choose a career in the commercial, public or charitable sectors. With
or without further study, you might eventually work as a management
or IT consultant, investment analyst, chartered management
accountant, banker, financial advisor or statistician, or in the
civil service or in marketing or sales.

For the Mathematics element of the course, you will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments,
construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems.
You will study in an intellectually stimulating environment amongst
mathematicians producing world-leading research.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. Mathematics helps you to take novel approaches to problem solving
and make critical interpretations of data and text; your skills will be in
demand wherever there’s a need for logical thinking. An extremely wide
range of career paths is open to mathematicians, where high levels
of mathematical ability are desirable. This can include fields of work
as diverse as finance, data analytics, teaching, engineering, medical
statistics and management consultancy.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to feel needed? This is one of the most flexible degrees of all and with so much of modern work being based on data, there are options everywhere for maths graduates. With all that training in handling figures, it's hardly surprising that a lot of maths graduates go into well-paid jobs in the IT or finance industries, and last year, a maths graduate in London could expect a very respectable average starting salary of £27k. And we're always short of teachers in maths, so that is an excellent option for anyone wanting to help the next generation. And if you want a research job, you'll want a doctorate — and a really good maths doctorate will get you all sorts of interest from academia and finance — and might secure some of the highest salaries going for new leavers from university.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
