Subjects

Management studies

Mathematics

This joint programme allows you to explore the world of abstract mathematical ideas and their practical applications, whilst building a strong skill set across all the key areas of business management, from strategy to marketing, accounting to e-commerce. You will develop practical skills in areas such as logistics, budgeting, inventory control and scheduling, as well as transferrable skills in communication and teamwork, numeracy, data handling and analysis, logical thinking and creative problem solving.

Guided by world-class researchers and inspirational teachers, you will gain a solid grounding in all the key methods and concepts of mathematical study, whilst studying cutting-edge theories and practices from the world of business. Whilst there are some core mathematics courses that all students take, you will also be free to choose from a wide range of optional courses, thanks to the programme’s flexible, modular structure. Mathematics will make up 75% of your final degree, with management contributing the remaining 25%.

Our broad curriculum is influenced by our world-class research activities. Our Department of Mathematics is internationally renowned for its work in pure mathematics, information security, statistics and theoretical physics, and our School of Management is a thriving department that just celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015/16. It takes a fresh and intellectually challenging approach to management research and education. Both departments offer a friendly and motivating learning environment and a strong focus on small group teaching and academic support. We offer generous office hours and a dedicated personal adviser to guide you through your studies, as well as CV writing workshops and a competitive work placement scheme.

+ Equip yourself with an enviable set of transferrable skills, by combining your mathematical skills with an understanding of all the key aspects of management.

+ Enjoy a flexible, modular curriculum that allows you to develop your own specialisms.

+ We rank consistently highly for student satisfaction, with an 81% rating from our management students. 94% of our mathematics students said we are good at explaining things (National Student Survey 2015).

+ We rank second in the UK for research impact and fourth for world leading or internationally excellent research in mathematics (Research Excellence Framework 2014).

+ Join an inspiring student community with a strong international outlook: 60% of our management students come from overseas.

Modules

Mathematics: Calculus, Mathematics: Functions of Several Variables, Mathematics: Number Systems, Mathematics: Matrix Algebra, Mathematics: Numbers and Functions,
Mathematics: Linear Alegbra and Project, Mathematics: Complex Variable

In addition to these mandatory course units there are a number of optional course units available during your degree studies

Assessment methods

The programme has a flexible, modular structure and you will take a total of 12 course units at a rate of four, 30-credit modules per year. In addition to our compulsory mathematics modules in years 1 and 2, you will be offered a wide range of optional courses each year, in both mathematics and management. Some contribute 15 credits to your overall award while others contribute the full 30.

We use a variety of teaching methods and there is a strong focus on small group teaching. You will attend 12 to 15 hours of formal teaching in a typical week, but you will also be expected to work on worksheets, revision and project work outside of these times. Mathematics teaching is mostly through lectures, tutorials, problem solving workshops and practical sessions in statistics and computational mathematics, while your management studies will combine lectures with seminars and workshops. Lectures are used to introduce the subject matter, while seminars provide an opportunity for further discussion and development. For your management courses you will be expected to work independently and collaboratively on researching topics for seminars, outside of your formal teaching hours. Both departments make use of Moodle, the College’s online learning platform, and a wide range of resources are available to help you with your project work and independent study.

Assessment is through a mixture of coursework and end-of-year examination in varying proportions, depending on the course units you choose to take. In mathematics, statistics and computational course units can include project components and tests. For management courses, assignments are conducted either as individual or group work, usually in the form of essays, reports or presentations. All students work in small groups to prepare a report and an oral presentation on a mathematical topic of their choice, which contributes towards one of the core subject marks in year 2, and two of the optional mathematics units in year 3 are examined solely by a project and presentation.

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.

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?
